Here’s another costuming idea for your autumn-themed home adornment. Meet Vincent, Virtuoso on the Vine. This squash has swagger!  He has a cultivated appreciation of artistic excellence – a connoisseur of objets d’art.

 

Virtuoso on the Vine

 

To create this artiste, you’ll need:

 

virtuoso supplies

Items:

  • 1 pumpkin
  • 2-3 large black beads
  • 1 beret (fascinator or child’s doll clothing fashion)
  • 1 piece black felt
  • Mustache stencil
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • White paint pen

 

Directions:

  1. Mark (or place by sight) the features – eyes, nose, mustache
  2. Glue on eyes
  3. Draw on nose, or use another bead, etc. I used a small bat sticker to complement my bat wing beret fascinator.
  4. Trace stencil onto felt
  5. Cut out felt mustache then adhere to pumpkin using glue
  6. Affix your topper

And you’re done!

He would be perfect company to the the candy dish in your gallery and is perfectly suited for the drawing room. This Virtuoso is also quite popular with the pretty pepons – paired together they make quite the IT couple to greet guests in your entryway. For our “Gourd”geous Gourd how-to, click here.
