Well now that I am done with my baking issue, I thought I would post a week of autumn corners, today is a silhouette pumpkin. I got a fake white pumpkin at Michel's. Also black acrylic paint and a fine-tipped paint brush.
I printed up on card-stock a 5x7 of the silhouette below (just click on picture and save). I carefully cut out the face and using double sided table, taped it to the pumpkin.With a pencil I traced around the face. Then with the fine-tipped brush, painted over the pencil line.
I just filled in with paint. It took about five coats, but I am thrilled with my pumpkin.
Hey, I will probably not have time to do much, but I am going to San Diego next week for a couple of days. Is there any must see shops in the area? I know were are going wine tasting in Temecula one day. Thank you for any recommendations xoxoxo
How delightful! I'd like to make a witchey one!!

I love your pumpkin, Clarice! I was just wondering a couple of days ago, if you were going to do your "Autumn Corners" again. I enjoyed that so much last year. This project has inspired me. Thank you!

You are coo-coo crafty girl! That is wonderful! I think I would put a witch on mine. Mwaaaaahhaaaaaaaa. I found these plastic pumpkins that you can actually carve! If I send them over, will you carve them for me?? I don't carve either. :-P

What a wonderful idea! Thank you so much for sharing. I love silhouettes. It looks especially nice on the white pumpkin! Have a great time in SD! (I hear they film most of the CSI Miami episodes there) :o)
