Purple Glitzy Pumpkin

 I made a purple pumpkin! Not just any purple pumpkin, but a glitzy purple pumpkin!  It's only natural for me to have a purple pumpkin. After all, my blog title is Purple Hues and Me! And I love purple! I was tired of the orange pumpkin I got on clearance last year at Hobby Lobby. Can't remember the price I paid, but it had to be cheap.  It was after Thanksgiving so I believe it was 80 percent off. That's the only way I would buy an "orange" pumpkin. I know, orange is THE color for autumn and fall. And I know it's the color of joy, interaction, creativity and playfulness, blah, blah, blah.  But there's something about orange that I grew to dislike. Perhaps it was back in the seventies when I had orange and gold shag carpeting in my first new home. Yuck!  I have had my fill of orange (not really, I know it's an important color, especially this time of the year).

                                             Sorry, little orange pumpkin  .   .   .   .

On to purple .   .   .   .

This color is called   "Heather"

Mix a little purple glitter, filler, and mod podge  .   .   .

 Add some purple rinestones  .   .   .

Ta Da  .   .   .                        Now, to decorate   .   .   .

Purple lovers  .   .   .   don't you just love it?
