Papier Mache Pumpkins

It's been awhile since I posted a craft project and so here's a fairly easy one to make pumpkins for Fall decorating.









Papier Mache Pumpkins

1 ea 3.5" and 6" papier mache pumpkin
1 - 1" scalloped wooden heart
1 - 1 1/4" scalloped wooden heart
green floral wire cut into 6" pieces
Wedgewood Green paint
Bittersweet Orange paint
Black paint

Drill through the stems and at the center top of the hearts using a small drill bit.  Paint stems and the leaves using green paint.  Paint the pumpkins orange.  Thread the wire through the holes in the stems.  Attach the hearts on the wire close to the stem and curl the remainder of the wire by wrapping it around a pen.  If you have a spatter brush, dip in black paint and hold about 6" away for a light speckling of black paint on the leaves and pumpkins.  You can also use an old toothbrush to spatter.
