Give Thanks

by Karla Der | 5 years ago

Hello, this is Karla from the DCWV social media team. I want to share with you how I made this light up pumpkin decoration. I was intrigued by the plastic half pumpkins I saw at the craft stores, so I decided to get one and play

I designed this cut file with the brother ScanNCut Canvas online tool.  I used some fonts and shapes available on the Canvas tool as well as some files designed by Wilna Furstenberg. I cut it on to a gold paper from the DCWV Mercury glass stack and backed it with a brown orange tinted vellum from the DCWV Premium 5 Pack papers. 

For the leaf base, I used a doily as a guide and layered leaves all around the edge. There is a mix of 99 cent store leaves, DCWV DIY Project Stack leaves and some of the mercury glass cuts. 

Since I wanted my pumpkin lantern to light up, I placed 3 LED tea lights inside but I needed a way to take them in and out to turn them on and off. I used a couple of these Tombow fastener tabs; I just cut them in half lengthwise and width wise and placed them where the edge of the pumpkin meets the paper. Now I can remove the paper easily!

Here it is, lit up! I'm so pleased it worked out!   I'll use it as a decoration on a little buffet table I have or maybe at the Thanksgiving table...if there's room!  

Have a wonderful end of the week!
