This is My first blog post this year, 2018. I hope you all had a nice holiday season and a good beginning on this New Year. Some post ago I told you that I would show you more of the stuffs I created for a Christmas market. Christmas is more or less over now and our tree will be taken down this evening. That’s why I think it’s better late than never to show you the crafts I sold at the Christmas market.
I made 4 types of Christmas tree decorations such as elephants, hearts, crochetimitations and gingerbread figures. I also had things that you can use all year around like necklaces, earrings and figurines.
Here are some photos of the ornaments in a Christmas tree, to see how it can look like.
I hope you all had a nice time reading this entry. I wish you all a good evening, night, morning or day wherever you may be in this world.
I can now tell you all that the strong and chilly autumn wind have taken away all the bright yellow leaves from the tree that I mentioned before. This is however the characteristic of this season and we must keep in mind that we will soon see new buds of leaves in the spring. When I’m still on the topic of plants and seasons it’s time to introduce this posts main content, which is pumpkins.
Yesterday I carved, what I want to call an autumn pumpkin. I prefer doing a pumpkin with general fall motifs then a Halloween pumpkin. I think that a fall pumpkin is more usable when Halloween have passed. When I was small I used to do usual Halloween pumpkins but now I feel that I want to do something more general for the season. I put my pumpkin outside our house door with a lantern and a small decoration pumpkin.
I will now talk about how I created the motif on the pumpkin. I used an alcohol marker to draw the outlines of the design and what I should cut out and what to leave. To ca out the pattern I used different sized knives because I don’t have special carving tools for this. When I cut or carved out the motif I clean the pumpkin from its flesh. Then it only remained to put a candle inside of it and place it outside and of course await the darkness.
Well this post its not that long but I will of course return with more as soon as I can.
I hope you all had a nice time reading this post. I wish you all a good evening, night, morning or day, wherever you may be on this earth.
2 or 3 day ago when i started looking through my decoupage box I got an new idea for a painting/decoupage. I found this pretty napkin with the text ” hem ljuva hem’ which means Home sweet home in swedish an though Oh i have to make something of this. And so I did. I don’t really now where I will put it but some where that you can see it.
