More Liberace Pumpkins




Last year I made two snazztastic Liberace pumpkins. Now this year they made three friends. Okay, maybe I made them. Just the same, they are altogether now a happy gang of five. Next year I'll aim for nine. I figure if Liberace appreciated anything above all else, it would be abundance


My favorite is the one I am calling The Snooki Pumpkin (not to be confused with Alexa's amazing Snooki Pumpkin). Mine started out as a $1.99 foam pumkpin from Goodwill. It was a little rough around the edges so I decoupaged it with leopard print tissue paper, sealed it with Mod Podge mixed with a spoonful of gold glitter, then just to keep things classy, I topped it off with some randomly dispersed orange rhinestones ringed with concentric circles of puff paint. The painted dots are so simple but they add a sort of ethnic flair I think. I'm not sure what kind of ethnic flair that might be but I know it's there.

Happy Halloween!
