Easy, Jeweled {White} Pumpkins

Last year, I came across this post for jeweled pumpkins from Glorious Treats and fell completely in love.  Of course, I didn’t think I’d ever really be able to make these, because I have no artistic ability.  The extent of my artwork is limited to smiley faces with eyelashes. But, oh, how I wanted these jeweled pumpkins.

This year, I was in a particular national craft supply store and saw jeweled swirly stickers ($4 each) that reminded me the Glorious Treats’ pumpkins. During the same shopping trip, I also noticed that their white faux pumpkins (my favorite) were 50% off.  I was going to buy some, but they were all scuffed and banged up, and it didn’t really look like the scuff would come off. Plus, even at 50% off, they were over $7 (a little more than I wanted to spend for scuffed up pumpkins).  So I passed on the pumpkins, but just couldn’t resist the stickers–they’re totally worth the money for me to not have to figure out a swirly design on my pumpkin.

During another outing at WalMart, I happened across some extremely ugly faux pumpkins that were $4 and under (depending on size). I suddenly had inspiration–I bought 3 pumpkins plus a can of of $0.99 white glossy spray paint, and literally ran home to make my easy & cheap jeweled pumpkins. The thing is, for as ugly as these pumpkins were, I liked the stems a whole lot more than the banged up ones from the craft store.

 

This really was such a simple project. Tape off the stem, spray paint a few coats, remove the tape, put on your stickers.  And I LOVE the finished project! I don’t think I’ve ever been so proud of a project in my life!

The one bad thing about the stickers is that the jewels do fall off, so I have to be really careful them. But for a grand total of less than $30, I don’t really care.  And now I have beautiful jeweled pumpkins to pretty up my living room, along with my $1.50 silver glitter pumpkins from Michael’s, my $2.50 black glittery pumpkin from Target, and fancy Dollar Store white glittery branches (tutorial to follow shortly).

 

See where I party!

      Thanks so much, Deborah! Sad you can’t find any cheap pumpkins anywhere. That’s how I felt last year. Maybe next year will be your lucky pumpkin year. =)
