Pumpkin Spice Duo

It's almost time for Fall decorating and today
I have this set of pumpkin jars to share at 
SIMPLE STORIES
www.simplestories.com


Create this pumpkin duo with your favorite pieces from the "Pumpkin Spice" Collection,
 a couple of recycled glass jars and burnt orange acrylic paint!

Before decorating either jar, a generous amount of burnt orange acrylic paint was
 squirted into the bottom.  After reattaching the lid (securely), the jar was shaken 
and rolled around until the interior was completely coated.  Next, I placed the jars
 upside down onto a thick mat of newspaper and allowed the excess paint to drip off. 
 You may need a sponge brush just to touch up some spots if needed. 
 I also used a heat tool (or hair dryer) to complete the drying process.

The largest pumpkin is a standard Mason jar size.  To it, I cut a strip of 
"Autumn Splendor" paper to 3.75"X12" and taped it in place around the jar with
 high tack adhesive.  I used a couple of dies that I had on hand to create a cute tag
 for the front.  The tag was distressed around the edges with a walnut ink and
 then embellished with goodies from Pumpkin Spice.

The second pumpkin is a smaller 2.75"X5" jar.  The same paper was cut to 2.5"W
 and just enough to wrap around the jar completely.  After threaded the chipboard
 buttons with jute, they were attached with a glue dot.

The bands of the lids were covered in a strip of the turquoise barn wood paper
 from the Simple Basics pack.  A wooden spools was inked with walnut ink 
and added to the top for the stem.

What an adorable display or gift for the upcoming Autumn season!
  I can't wait to share them with my visiting guests soon.  I hope you've enjoyed!
