Today I have a craft pumpkin to share with you. With the help of some images from the ever Freaky and Fabulous Octopode Factory I was able to give this craft pumpkin the Tim Burton treatment.
The craft pumpkin was spray painted with Krylon Glo and Krylon Glitter Blast. Glitter Blast is my new favorite paint just do yourself a favor and get the Glitter blast sealer it’s definitely worth the extra $$.
The addition of the houses behind Edward were an afterthought but I am soooo glad I added them. This piece would not have been what it is without them and I have the Octopode Factory Friday Challenge to thank for that! How perfect is this row of houses to showcase the neighborhood Edward happens upon in the movie? Did you know that the movie was filmed in a REAL neighborhood with houses painted these exact colors? Good old Lutz, Florida.
The tall dark house behind Edward was colored to match the clock tower…Edward’s primary residence…from the movie. I wonder if Lily the owner and mastermind behind the Octopode Factory planned this? Edward was mounted on grunge paper to add dimension and all images were colored with Copic Markers, sealed and adhered with Mod Podge.
Since Edward Scissorhands was well-known for his topiary skills I felt it was fitting to add heart-shaped ‘hedges’ to the sides of the craft pumpkin. To create the hedge I cut up an old craft wreath and inserted small pieces into the sides. Before cutting I blasted it with Krylon glitter blast for extra sparkle.
I always have to give credit where credit is due so I have placed the Octopode Factory logo on the back of the craft pumpkin…besides I adore that bug-eyed unicorn
The scissors on top were my Grandfather’s. Although they were too rusty to use they were perfect for altering. I colored them with alcohol inks and jabbed them into the top….no glue required they are in there for GOOD!
While I was creating this craft pumpkin I happened upon the current challenge at Haunted Design House which is inspired by the ever popular B flick “Pumpkin Head”. Although I’ve never seen the movie, I remember the cover always freaked me out when I worked at a Video store (remember those?) during my high school days…I must say it WAS a popular rental during this time of year:)
But wait there’s more!! Edward is part of a set I have been working on….so keep checking back on the Octopode Factory pumpkin patch.
Thanks for stopping by!
