Glitter Gourds!

Okay ... another Stampin' Up! Convention 2013 main stage presentation project!

Quick. Easy. BE-U-T-FUL! Glitter Gourds!

Ornamental gourds are everywhere in the fall. You can find them at the dollar store, tucked in flower arrangements from the florist, in your old Halloween decorations ... I could go on.
You can take these from drab to FAB!

these would be the "drab"  gourds!

Step 1
Paint Chrystal Effects over one half of the gourd.
I found it easiest to do half at a time to prevent the Chrystal Effects from setting too quickly.

Step 2
Dump Stampin' Glitter Over the wet Chrystal Effects.
Hint: Keep a scratch piece of paper under your gourd to collect excess glitter.

Black & Orange Stampin' Glitter
Silver & Gold Stampin' Glitter

Step 3
Repeat Step 1 & 2 to other half of the gourd to completely cover.

These would make great gift bag toppers, Christmas tree ornaments, Thanksgiving table decorations or Halloween decor decorations. I hot glued a little twine to a few of mine to add a little extra touch.

Thanks for visiting my blog! Hope you are inspired to make some quick fabulous gourds! Have a creative day!
