A Girl, A pumpkin and Painting Burlap{The CSI Girl}

Hi everyone! This is your CSI Girl back with you.

It is party day but before that how about another tutorial. This one does have burlap in it but its a small piece.

I wanted to make a pumpkin out of canning jar lids. You know you have them! I saw a cute pumpkin online(just like everyone else on the planet) found at Simply Klassic Home and immediately began collecting my lids. I bought 20 for $2 from someone in my neighborhood. Score!

Then, I made this and I will show you how.

This is burlap week so I wanted to incorporate that.

First, grab wire and put on your lids together. I had Mr. CSI help me with this step.

Then, fluff out the lids making sure they all spread out.

Now, you can use any stick from outside, cinnamon sticks which is what my inspiraton from Simply Klassic Home used, but I used a left over popsicle stick and wrapped it in jute.

See that leaf….it is made of burlap that I painted green. Or you can buy green burlap.

I free handed a leaf and cut it out. Some craft paint later, I was done.

I hot glued my leaf on by the stick and now you have a pumpin to add to your fall decor.

Come on over to link up your burlap projects. Go here!  

Our guest judge Diane is ready to see what you got!!!

See you there!
