pumpkin 10 copy It’s time to start thinking about fall decor!  I LOVE fall…and my kids can’t wait for Halloween.  When I received these pumpkins from Michaels, I knew I wanted to get a little fancy.  I decided to get some fancy trimmings from Michaels to glam them up a bit.  I love spending my time decorating these foam pumpkins (they look so real) because they will be good next year and the next!!

On my list:  Ribbon (with glitter polka dots). web coasters (to die for cute), sticky rhinestones, other ribbon, fancy webbing runner for my table (found by the baking section of Michaels), sparkly spiders & rubber bats (a touch for the kids!)

Below I will show you how I glammed up my 3 pumpkins!

PUMPKIN 1:  Black Pumpkin.  Using a clear adhesive runner, I applied ribbon to the sided, following the pumpkin creases.  And using the self-stick gems (above) I made jewel lines in the creases alternating big and little.  Love how this one turned out!

PUMPKIN 2:  White pumpkin.  I am in love  with this tiny white pumpkin.  I loved keeping it simple using the web coasters (above) found in the Michael’s baking section.  I just applied clear adhesive to the front of the pumpkin and added the web.  Simple…simple and so cute and classy!

PUMPKIN 3:  Orange large pumpkin.  I used my glitter polka dot ribbon and using 3 inch strips, created a chevron pattern on the top and bottom.  I used clear adhesive to attach the strips of ribbon.  Then, I took the little rubber bats (my kids love this touch), glammed them up with some Krylon silver foil spray paint.  I then added these fancy bats using clear glue dots.

These pumpkins were easy to make and are so much fun to display!  I love the bit of fancy they add to my Halloween decor!

    I have been looking for foam pumpkins for years now. I bought 2 last year but there were very expensive. I would be so happy to have Michael’s here in Germany.
