Pumpkin Book Art

Hi everyone! Grammie wants to thank everyone for the purrfect birthday wishes yesterday, she read them all and they made her very happy.

For Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and for the #JHC, ( decoration is today’s word), I want to show you the pumpkin books I finally finished.

100_9730-1 100_9728-1I had been stressing about Joanie’s ear so I went a little crazy and made 10. I actually made 11, but I tried to dip one in diluted paint instead of spray painting and it did not go well. They were very easy to make, I found this video to have the best directions as well as a link to templates to use to cut out the books.

I used some larger paperbacks and some small ones. To decorate the smaller ones, I used a branch for the stem, on the larger ones, I painted it green on the book. I am hoping to make more this weekend. I have an old Grey’s Anatomy book I would like to make one for my Doctor with. I think it would be fun to match books with people’s interests to make them special.

    1. Sorry to make your human nervous- don’t worry, I would never cut up Sparkle’s books or Rescued.

    1. Thank you 🙂 I had a lot of fun making them. Sammy is thrilled to have his neckerchief. XO

  1. I love homemade decorations, and your book pumpkins are amazing! They look so fun and festive. And I think your idea to use specially chosen books for different people is so brilliant. You’re so creative! And, Sammy, you look super handsome in your quest neckerchief! Purrs to all of you!
