Have you all been busily crafting up fall decorations this week?
Last weekend I promised you a tute on how to bling up your pumpkins if you like a little sparkle and shine even before the Christmas decorating starts. I know I like it all year round!
Well, let me tell you friends...this project is so easy that anyone at any crafting skill level can do it
and you won't know when to stop!
First I went to my favorite dollar store (Dollarama, for my fellow Canadians), and stocked up on several pumpkins. The biggest were $2 each and the smallest were $1 - how can you go wrong with that,
even if you do mess up, right?!
Then I sprayed them all over with a couple coats of an aluminum colored spray paint.
While I was at the dollar store, I wandered down the craft aisle (best aisle ever!) and threw whatever caught my fancy into my basket. The rhinestone packages are stickers that I believe are meant for scrap booking.
I also picked up some stencils, thinking I could use them with black paint and accent with a few loose rhinestones (great thought, right?), but let me tell ya...that was a big, fat FAIL. Argh!
Anyhow, back to the rhinestones.
I then cut apart the different shapes and swirls...
...then carefully peeled off the backing and stuck them onto the pumpkin wherever I thought they looked nice.
Seriously. Does a craft get any easier than that? I think not.
I like the way they fit in with the color scheme and style of our bedroom.
A bit of silvery grey and a bit of glam.
(Do not tell my hubby that I used the word "glam" to describe our room.
He likes our room and what he doesn't know won't hurt him! )
Here are some close ups of the different gourds.
Hopefully they will give you a few ideas of what you could do with your own.
And there you have it!
How easy was that?
Now go forth and blingify your pumpkins.
I'm pretty sure that's a word.
If you need some more ideas...good ol' Pinterest to the rescue!
Here are some great blinged up pumpkins I found in the last couple of days.(There are so many more pictures on there now than there were when I did my Autumn Inspiration
post the end of August. Wowza!)
Have fun, my friends!
I can't wait to see what you come up with!
