Ok so, I thought and thought about what I was going to do for this challenge, I looked at all kinds of ideas, so I started to look at all the supplies I had, and I picked what I would use!
my pumpkin challenge
so here is what I got together, minus the embellishment. I’ve collected a few cereal boxes, and fruit snack boxes, then I cut a few into strips. Grabbed my Hammered look spray paint, and some brads. Now you can cut the strips any size you want! I chose to make a mini pumpkin.

So after cutting into strips, I poked holes on top and bottom of strip. I took 8 strips.

to the brad, first the top part.

incevi was satisfied with the shape ( you play with it until you like the shape) I took it out side to spray, I first sprayed the top, and made sure it was covered well.

    Would it have been easier to do the painting before putting the cardboard strips together?
