So I think I’m addicted to this CraZart Modelite y’all!! It is so FUN and I have discovered yet another way to add it to your decor!! Fall is coming, so of course I have pumpkins on my mind, and if you’re like me you LOVE anything mini!! Plus, I love animal print in the fall so let’s try some mini pumpkins with easy leopard print!!
What we’ll be using…
Of course I’m using the Modelite by CraZart to form the pumpkins, but I’m also using a backyard stick (for stems), paint (black and gold) for the leopard spots, a paint brush, glue, and some glitter or Diamond Dust for a little sparkle!!
First up we’ll need to form the pumpkins from the Modelite. I like to roll about a spoonful into a ball and the roll it on wax paper to create a pumpkin like shape.
When I have the shape I want, I’ll press it down to make it a little flatter and then use the end of a paint brush to make creases all the way around.
This Modelite is seriously so easy to work with!! I’ve used it for several projectsl!! Check out these adorable mints I made that will be perfect for Christmas!!
Next up, press a small piece of the stick into the top for a stem. You’ll want to allow the the pumpkin to dry 48 hours.
Adding the easy leopard print…
Once the pumpkins have dried, we’ll add the leopard print. First we’ll add gold dots onto the pumpkin. They don’t have to be perfect, and honestly if they’re not even better.
For this next part you can use black paint and a small paintbrush OR a Sharpie marker. I used paint on one and then the marker on another and I have to say it worked great!!
Adding some bling…
This last step is optional if you don’t like glitter, but I love the extra sparkle!! I’m using glue and Diamond Dust for this part!!
I’m applying the glue to the top and spreading it around with a small paintbrush. Then I’m just sprinkling the Diamond Dust on. Add as little or as much as you like.
I thought these little guys were adorable just like this, but I decided to add a few more small “leopard” dots with the marker and then a little gold on top with a toothpick.
I LOVE how these guys turned out and they would be perfect fillers for a small dough bowl, tiered tray, you name it!! These mini pumpkins with easy leopard print definitely make me excited to decorate for fall!! How about you?
