Monogrammed Pumpkin

I saw a really pretty pumpkin HERE the other day on Pinterest.  I took inspiration from it and made this one.



They had glued rhinestones all over the original one and I thought to myself, "This is a job for Beads in a Bottle!"  It's such a cool product.  A couple of you asked where to find it and JoAnn's is carrying it or you buy it online HERE.


So I thought I'd also add a monogram to mine.  I just went for it.  I did the "H" and then I made the swirls above.  I just did a row of dots and then added another and another.  Keep in mind if you try this, that the beads grow a little after you squirt them out.  They kind of expand a little as they settle.  You can see there are spots where my dots overlap a little because of that.  However, if you mess up, you can always wipe that area off quickly and start over.



Doesn't it look like little jewels or beads?  



It took less them 10 minutes.  Plus, I liked not having the giant mess you do with carving.  

  
On top of that, the carved pumpkins rot quickly, but this one will be around till Thanksgiving.  Sweet.


Thanks for reading.
