Welcome to my Ornament Girl Inspire Series, and Happy Halloween!
Today's ornament: a cute Pumpkin ornament with an adorable beaded topper.
Pattern Info: This ornament was made using the Kimekomi Technique. You can learn this technique on a ball, HERE, and then use it on a pumpkin (or any shape!)
Materials Info: Made on a Soft Foam Pumpkin. Darlene made this with old fabrics from her stash (one of the many great things about making these ornaments: they use small pieces of fabric... a great way to use up your scrap stash).
What really makes this pumpkin fun is the topper! Darlene had the orange faceted beads (found at Hobby Lobby a long time ago) and then found the leaf beads recently from Fire Mountain Gems.
She added them into the stem of the pumpkin ornament with gold pins. She used regular pins on the leaves, but colored the ends of the pins with a green sharpie so they'd blend with the leaves.
Ninja Tip: The white stem of the pumpkin was showing through the transparent orange beads, so she colored the stem with an orange sharpie first!
