Hi guys, Happy Monday! (Make it Monday has been rescheduled for next week, so I can share this tutorial with you!).

For my first project I created this Happy Jack-O-Lantern/Pumpkin Wood Slice that makes the most perfect porch decor! He goes great with my Glittered Gourds!

6. Use Woodland Brown to paint in the vines. Outline the leaves and outside Pumpkin areas in Wrought Iron Black. Let dry for 24 hours.


7. Brush the surface of the wood with DuraClear Gloss Varnish. While it is still wet, lightly shake Gold Sprinkle-On Glitter over it. Let dry. Once dry, brush off the excess glitter. Apply another coat of Gloss Varnish to the surface.
