Let's Get Started:
1 white real pumpkin
1 glass pumpkin
1 resin pumpkin
Antique white acrylic paint
3 doilies or lace
Bling of your choice such as crystals and pearls
Re-purposed candle stand
- I started with the real pumpkin first because it had the least work. I cleaned it with water and added some pearls around the top and wrapped the stem in pearl-like beads.
- I painted the old orange resin pumpkin with antique white acrylic paint. When it dried, I applied some crystal bling that I bought at the craft store for $3. It already has adhesive on the back and as long as your paint is dry, it sticks well. I can't help myself - I must have bling!
- I started the glass pumpkin base by measuring my doily, I realized I would need to cut it in half. I applied the Mod Podge to the pumpkin base (with a paint brush) and placed the doily over the top. I worked quickly so I could reposition the doily before it started to dry. I did the same thing for the second half of the doily.
- I wanted different textures so I used 2 doilies for the top of the glass pumpkin. I started with a larger doily and cut the top so it would fit over the pumpkin stem. I applied the Mod Podge and placed the doily over the top. The second top doily fit over the stem so I placed it over the first doily (I didn't use any Mod Podge for this step).
- I applied Mod Podge to the stem and wrapped some of pearl-like beads around the stem.
- Arrange the pumpkins and enjoy your inexpensive DIY fall project!
