DIY Glam Pumpkins

October 3, 2015

In the spirit of fall, we made a family trip to the pumpkin patch. =) NEXT… it was time to decorate!! =)

For this glam pumpkin project, it’s BEST to stay outdoors in a well ventilated area, and faaaar away from children or animals. Never can be too safe when it comes to spray paint and glitter! =) First things first, lay down a painter’s cloth. Newspaper would work too!

Pumpkin

Start with the bottom of the pumpkin, and spray the gold metallic spray paint. Give it a minute to dry.

In the mean time, take out some spooky spiders…

…and glam them up a bit with the same paint.

Next we flip the pumpkin upright, and finished the paint job. Love the way it turned out!

Using this amazing rhinestone monogram from Michaels, I bedazzled my pumpkin with the letter “T” for the Talbott family… You could use a stencil if you’d like, but this was MUCH easier for me =)

Couldn’t be happier with the end product!

Classic, festive, and so simple to make!

This is the perfect activity to get you in a festive mood. It’s especially great to do with your family or friends =)

Saving the best for last…I started with this gorgeous ghost white pumpkin.

Finding these rhinestone strips at Michael’s was a blessing, and saved us so much time!

They’re so stunning, and even come with adhesive backs to save you time and messy hands.

Cut the strips in half…and place them along the natural edges of the pumpkin.

Do this around the entire pumpkin.

Using the same rhinestone strips, you can start to see the beginning of a spiderweb by creating three levels in between each vertical row of the rhinestones previously laid.

After continuing the pattern, you are left with one sparklie, beautiful, glamorous spider web!

Beyond pretty, and so unique!

To finish it off, add a gold spider…

Long story short, we had SO much fun making these glammed out pumpkins. I can’t wait to see what other people are coming up with this Halloween! This is the season to be creative!

Hope you enjoyed this post!
Until next time.

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many
    choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Kudos!

    Your pumpkins came out SO cute! I especially love the white one with the rhinestone web, definitely using that as inspiration this year 😀 though, I might use a re-usable, foam pumpkin from a craft store to have for future use!
