Glittered pumpkins

Okay, altered pumpkins are so hot this year! So many crafters are changing their dollar store pumpkins from blah to blah-maaaazing! (Haha, that didn't really work, but let's just pretend it did, okay?) Beckie at Infarrantly Creative transformed a plain foam dollar store pumpkin into a pretty centerpiece by spraying with glitter spray paint, hollowing out a hole for a candle, and adding a coordinating ribbon. Does it get any easier than that? She also has a cool trick for making a placecard holder, but I'll let you click over and find out what it is. [how to make a glittered pumpkin candle holder]

Project Estimate:

  • Pumpkin, $1
  • Glitter paint, on hand or about $4
  • Candle, on hand
  • Ribbon, on hand or $1

Total: $1 and up

    Foam, paint, fabric and glitter seem a bit volatile! Clever idea, but for safety’s sake I’d

    -use a real pumpkin, hollowed out with an apple-corer or a tea light corer
    -use the faux pumpkin, but with a faux(LED) tea light.
