DIY Burlap Candle and Glittered Pumpkin Centerpiece

 

thanksgiving diy centerpiece burlap mod podge

Here is a simple idea for making a Thanksgiving centerpiece that will last for years. The pumpkin was coated with gold extreme glitter to add some sparkle and the glass cylinder was covered with burlap.  We used some fall floral pics for some embellishment!

What we used:
Plaid ® Hot Glue Gun Helpers
FolkArt ® Extreme Glitter™ – Gold, 5 oz.
Mod Podge ® Fabric, 8 oz.
Woven fiber placemat (round)
Large craft bowl
Tin foil
Medium craft bowl
Burlap fabric
Glass candleholder cylinder
Fall fabric motif
Foam pumpkin
Craft knife
Fall floral picks
Fall leaf trim
Fall silk flowers
Fall felt leaf ribbon
Hot glue

Instructions
1. Trim the burlap so it will fit around the glass candleholder cylinder. Make sure you leave a little extra for overlapping. Coat the outside of the cylinder fabric Mod Podge. Use a thick coat. Position the burlap on the cylinder. Smooth with your fingers. Use fabric Mod Podge to attach the fall fabric motif to the top-center of design. Allow to dry. Once dry, trim around the edge to get a smooth edge if needed.

2. Using a craft knife, cut a hole in the top of the pumpkin. Continue carving until the space is large enough to hold the burlap wrapped cylinder.

3. Using a foam paintbrush, apply 2 coats of Gold Extreme Glitter to the outside of the pumpkin. Allow to dry.

4. Place the candleholder cylinder in the carved hole. Using hot glue, attach silk flowers and fall trim to the base of the candleholder.

DIY Fabric Covered Sneakers with Mod Podge

Fabric Covered Sneakers with Mod Podge

Recently, Steve and I were shopping for summer blow-up pools at Walmart when my eye spotted this adorable fabric!  Ya know…I had to get a cut of this acid green floral fabric and I grabbed the plain shoes too. You really only need a few supplies to make a pair of custom sneakers and we promise it is easy!  For best results use cotton or cotton blend fabrics.  Fabrics with all over prints work well.

Sequin trim

Wrap the fabric around shoe to determine the size needed.  I like to do this on the bias so you get a little stretch and it helps with the fabric smoothing over the rounded sections.

Apply Fabric Mod Podge to the shoes.  For this design we just added fabric to the toe and heel area.

Place the fabric onto the shoe.  Smooth the fabric.
