Buffalo Plaid….is it here to stay?
Here are my finished products. I loved mine so much but I sold it. I needed another one. So I made two more. Will I sell them? I am not sure……I hope so….
Keep reading about how we made them and more pictures of the process.
Below is a picture of the “twins”. Lol.
Below is a picture of the raw wood Mom cut. She made 2 pumpkin/snowmen and 2 bells.
Below is a picture of her painting it white. We could not find white paint when the pandemic hit. So I want to Lowes and bought Valspar Storm Coat Exterior Paint. It works great.
Below is a picture of me using my Chalk Couture Large Buffalo Print Transfer. I am an Independent Chalk Couture Designer. It was the first time I used it and it is not perfect but my buffalo print does not need to be perfect. I did mess up on the outer edge, but I washed that portion off and replaced it. That’s the great thing about Chalking.
Below is a picture of me doing the buffalo plaid the painted on way. The stripes go on first. So this is how I make my vertical stripes. I use painters tape and use small pieces of it to space it out. I find the center first and then go out from there. I usually do more than one project at a time. I kind of make an assembly line so to speak.
Below I am painting my Light Gray stripes on. I use two shades of Gray. You can just use the same color gray to do both vertical and horizontal stripes. I have a separate detailed post on how I do this. See my library of posts.
Here are the two stacked pumpkins done. You can see the difference between the buffalo prints. I like them both. The chalking is much easier and quicker.
The below picture is where I added the lowlights and highlights and details.
It was nearly Thanksgiving when I finished these stacked pumpkins. Life gets interrupted. So I decided to put Snowmen on the back sides and make them reversible. I had to hide the stems of the pumpkins, so we decided to put hats on them. REAL HATS. Santa Hat on one and Beanie on the other. I used my own scarves/mufflers on them.
I hope you enjoyed the journey of our Stacked Pumpkins to Reversible Snowmen.
