DIY Rhinestone, Sequin & Pearl Pumpkins

If you have been looking for very long, some of the decorated pumpkins can be pretty expensive.  Not to worry, you can decorate some for practically nothing and they are so easy to do.

I wanted some that had rhinestones, sequins and pearls.  



I started with three that I already had from the dollar store that I painted white last year.  I got out my craft metalic paint - -


 and some stick on rhinestones and pearls from Michaels.  I also had a pkg. of irridencent sequins.



I painted the stem gold and left the pumpkin all white, then I added an assortment of rhinestones and pearls.  I painted mod-podge over everything 3/4 of the say down and sprinkled sequins all over.  When it was dry I just shook the excess sequins off into a bowl to put back in the pkgs.


I painted the stem and feathered gold half way down on this one and did the same thing with rhinestones and sequins.


 I painted 3/4 of the way down with gold on this one, then did a few pearls and larger rhinestones.  I only added the sequins to one side.

This is about a 15 minute project and I have some pretty pumpkins to glitz up my fall decor.   So, are you on the glitzy side or the rustic or maybe both like me.

  15. Marty,
    These are adorable and have just the right amount of bling for me. I love the white one sitting atop the white box, and I love both of the ones sitting in front of the mirrored letter. So how do you think of these fantastic projects?
