Hi friends! It’s official. We are empty nesters. I am not feeling great today to be honest with you. I have a pit in my stomach that I can’t explain:( I got my craft on as soon as possible). Today I am sharing my Pumpkin Splatter screen wreath I made.
I finally found my splatter screens at the third Dollar tree I went to. I was determined to make this and find those screens. Clearly this is a craft gone wild and Dollar tree can’t keep them on the shelves.
The beauty about these splatter screen pumpkin wreaths is that you can really make them your own. Because I was feeling down and super creative at the same time, I took the splatter literal. I used Mod podge, chalky paint and regular white craft paint. So many of my supplies are dried up. I considered Gesso, but my jar was hard as a rock. I wanted texture, color, and something to match more style.
My pumpkin took on a look of its own. Painting the Mod Podge on the screen really helped the chalk paint and white craft paint adhere in random places. It sort of looks like a water color. At least in my eyes it does.
In the center I cut out a very thin, almost like mesh ribbon and mod podged the leaves. They are still drying as we speak. NOTE: You can use napkins as well and Mod Podge those on the screen. That would be really cool as well. I just couldn’t wait to share this craft with you:) I LOVE IT!
Supplies: Mod Podge (I only had the formula for paper: It worked). Chalky paint by Folk art COLOR: Grotto found at Walmart. White matte acrylic craft paint. Sponge brushes, twine, ribbon, burlap ribbon, burlap leaves (found at Dollar Tree. As mentioned I painted the screen first with Mod Podge, let dry for only a few minutes, and then painted all over it with chalky paint, and then went over the chalky paint with the white craft paint. I let all this dry overnight. Please do this on a paper bag with a plastic garbage bag under the surface.

Mine will be going on our pantry door. As soon as I get my kitchen fall fluffed I will share with you how it looks.
Here is a sneak peek in the meantime.
