Don’t you just love Pottery Barn? But don’t love the prices? I know, me, too. A few weeks ago I shared my DIY Pottery Barn Knock-off Glitter Book Page Pumpkin. I made it before I started a blog, so I wasn’t ever able to share the tutorial.
Well, today is your lucky day! I have the tutorial for my Pottery Barn Knock-off Glitter Book Page Pumpkin for you today! Woo! I knew you would be as happy as I am!
Isn’t she lovely?
I started out with a store bought plastic pumpkin. Easy enough, right?
Using flat paint, I painted over the orange so it would show through my decoupaged book pages.
While the paint was drying, I tore out a few pages from my 1941 dictionary that I bought for a dollar. This dictionary has lasted me through garlands, wedding decor, wedding dinner, and now for my Glitter Book Page Pumpkin. And I still have more pages to work with. Woo!
Once the paint was dry, I could begin to layer my torn pieces of dictionary. I used a high gloss decoupage from Martha Stewart. On my waste basket, I used matte. But, I wanted this pumpkin to glitter and shine!
When the decoupage was dry, I added twine with hot glue around the stem with a long tail. I always like the pumpkins with the long stems, don’t you?
I liked adding a little moss for extra texture around the stem and along the “tail”.
Using a silver glitter spray, I sprayed all around my pumpkin. Oh, how she makes me smile!
I thought an old key would be the icing on the cake. What do you think? I just love the look of my DIY Pottery Barn Knock-off Book Page Glitter Pumpkin.
Do you think you will make one?
