Blackbird Swirl Pumpkin

Blackbird & Swirl

My boyfriend grew this white pumpkin for me and I wanted to do something simple and pretty. I decided to incorporate this $1 blackbird/raven that I bought at the Dollar Tree into the mix. Pixie (my black cat) won’t be happy about this…she’s taken a liking to this birdie and I’ve seen it dragged all over my floor into the other room. So if it’s feathers look a bit ruffled, it’s because they are. Cat saliva has a way of doing that. Haha.

2. Squeeze paint out into random swirls all around pumpkin. Keep tip clean to prevent air bubbles. I had to paint sections (3 in all) at a time and let dry.

3. Glue the bottom of the blackbird’s feet to the pumpkin using the Liquid Fusion Glue. Let dry and display proudly!

I’m all about a great Halloween pumpkin you can make for under $5 bucks, aren’t you?

Until next time Swellions!
