This year I wanted to glam things up a bit for fall and I thought jeweled pumpkins would be the perfect way to add a little sparkle to my home. I loved the way they came out so much that I decided to share the process. Get ready to glam up your Halloween decor with this easy and affordable jeweled pumpkin diy. I chose to use faux pumpkins from Dollar Tree to keep costs down. But you can use any faux pumpkins or real pumpkins if you want.
- Pumpkins (Dollar Tree)
- Rhinestones (Dollar Tree)
- Glitter (99 Cents Only Store)
- Glue (99 Cents Only Store)
- Acrylic paint (Micheal’s)
- Paint sponge or paint brush (99 Cents Only Store)
Put down a protective layer of newspaper or craft paper to protect your work surface.
Paint the surface of your pumpkin with the acrylic paint until you reach your desired look. Allow paint to dry between coats. It took me three coats to reach the look I wanted.
Apply rhinestones in the desired pattern with glue. Allow rhinestones to dry.
Once rhinestones have dried. Apply glue to the stem of the pumpkin. While glue is still wet, sprinkle glitter on the stem. Shake off excess glitter and allow to dry.
For a grand total of a little over $6, I have beautiful jeweled pumpkins to glam up my living room, along with my $2 upcycled black pearl pumpkin and free upcycled white glitter pumpkin.
