Pumpkin Bling



Here is my take on pumpkin decor. I don't have a full tutorial this time but the process is pretty self explanatory.



I used a real mini pumpkin and painted it white with regular acrylic paint.



I didn't have a small squeezable glue bottle so as an “adhesive” I used a small bottle of glitter paint because it had a tip small enough to make dots for the rhinestones.



So I glued the rhinestones on in between the pumpkin indentations and let dry. I also painted the stem silver.




Next time a may glue the rhinestones in closer together, I just wanted to make sure I had enough to cover this time around. And I also thought about gluing the rhinestones all around the stem too.


Happy Fall!
