Burlap Pumpkin

I've been seeing a lot of these burlap door hangings around, so I thought I'd give it a try.

acrylic paint
clear spray
parchment paper

I started by making a simple pumpkin pattern out of newspaper and cutting two out of burlap.

Next, I drew a chevron design on one of the pumpkins.  Then put parchment paper under it and started painting!

Then I sewed the two pumpkins together and stuffed with plastic bags.

I forgot to take a picture, but at this point I took it outside and sprayed the painted side with a couple coats of clear spray.  Once it was dry, I attached a bow and wire to hang.

 This project was really simple and I have a lot of ideas to make using this same method!
