Let’s jump in today with a Creatastic Banner by Larissa with Muffins and Lace
Good morning everyone. Larissa here with a banner I created using TCW stencils and Susan K Weckesser stamps.

I started out taking some wooden pumpkins and painting them with orange craft paint. I painted the top of each with brown paint.
Once the paint was dry which it did not take very long I grabbed my modeling paste and spatula.  I chose to work with two different stencils from TCW Mini Beaded Curtain and Vineyard.  I took a little paste and my spatula and spread a light coat over the top of the stencil. Making sure to drag across the stencil to get the excess off.

I did all 9 pumpkins.  While they were drying I painted chipboard letters in a metallic gold. I also stamped 2 of my favorite little gnome from Susan K Weckesser.  I colored them using my Copic markers.
I glued the letters and gnomies down with Tombow Mono Multi adhesive.  I then glued brown glittery ribbon on each pumpkin connecting them together.
I attached two orange bows one on each end.
This project was so much fun and super simple. The stencils added a finishing touch to the pumpkins.

Hope you enjoyed my post today.

Have a great rest of your day.
