Apples to Pumpkins

DONT FORGET TO SIGN UP FOR THE GIVEAWAY BELOW!
ONLY like 20 have so far, so your chances are pretty great!

So my sis in law was D-Iing these apples... I dont decorate with apples, but as soon as I saw them, I knew they had a refurbished future in my home...
(Because I desperately need more Fall Decor!)

I traced the pumpkins onto some fun paper... (This is the back of the paper...which I actually ended up liking the color of and used for one of the apples...)

I wanted to paint the sides of the apples an orangey color. I was thinking a dark orange like the paper above. I got out some bright orange paint...I dont use a ton of orange paint, so I experimented. I added a touch of black to the paint to see if that would make it a nice dark orange shade...nope, it turned puke green (odd....) So I started over and thought I'll do a light orange instead...so I added some white...and it turned yellow. (At this point I hit myself in the head with my hand...DUH! I should've at least known it would have turned yellow). Anyway, so I gave up on orange and just painted the darn sides of the apples Tan...You can never go too wrong with tan...
{Stupid yellow paint... }

I whipped out my Mod Podge, and turned my Apples into PUMPKINS! I thought about sanding the edges, but ended up liking them the way they were!

I didn't even have to take off the Hemp String and the leaves. It was THAT.EASY.
Autumn is too beautiful not to celebrate!
Here you can find the FALL BIRD HOUSES and FABRIC No-Sew PUMPKINS .
Go sign up for the giveaway! It ends the 13th at Midnight!
