Lace pumpkin by MissDwidwi Lace pumpkin by MissDwidwi
My submission for the Trick or Treat contest at :iconcrartisancrafts:, in the fake pumpkin category.

As you can see, I just crocheted a doily, well sort of because the orange is made in one ball piece instead of flat and gave it's shape by inflating a balloon inside. Then I used watered down plain white glue (water and glue on par) to soak it. After one night, it went stiff and kept the shape when I popped the balloon ;)

I just crocheted the green part to finish it.

Steel hook 7, cotton thread orange and green, free crochet (no pattern). About 7 inches.

And what about the photo? Scary? :D

Mon entrée pour le concours de :iconcrartisancrafts:, dans la catégorie fausse citrouille.

Comme vous pouvez le voir, j'ai juste fait une sorte de napperon en forme de boule au lieu de plat, j'ai ensuite gonflé un ballon à l'intérieur. Pour conserver la forme, j'ai juste utilisé de la colle blanche diluée à l'eau (moitié moité) que j'ai passée au pinceau pour bien imbiber le coton. La nuit passée, voilà une citrouille qui reste bien en forme un fois le ballon éclaté!

J'ai juste terminé en crochetant toute la partie verte.

Crochet 1.5 mm, coton orange et vert, sans diagramme. environ 18 cm.

Au fait, et la photo vous en pensez quoi? Ca fait peur ou pas? :D
