Lace & Glitter Pumpkins – Pretty Pumpkin Series


Lace & Glitter Pumpkins

 

Hello all!  I’m back with another ridiculously easy pumpkin DIY.  As you can see I’m sticking with the black and white theme again this week.  I’m really digging the pretty goth feel.  This weekend I prettied up some pumpkins using lace and glitter and it was so easy!  So this tutorial (if you can call it that) will be short and sweet.

how to

Here’s the how to, short and sweet as I promised.  Wash and dry your pumpkin.  Spray paint your pumpkin and let dry.  For the glitter pumpkin, paint on a thin layer of the Mod Podge and sprinkle with glitter.  With this pumpkin I only wanted to glitter the top and let it fade to the flat black. I loved the way it turned out! For the lace stickers pumpkin…apply the stickers as desired.  You can use fabric lace cutouts just as easily.  Just brush some Mod Podge on the back of the lace and apply to the pumpkin. These pumpkins were really so simple that they don’t really need much of a tutorial.  I will give you a tip though. Place the stickers carefully.  When I tried to move the sticker it pulled the paint up with it.

Have you used these techniques to decorate pumpkins?  I would love to see them.  I really think white pumpkins with black lace would be beautiful too.  I may have to make some!

Happy decorating!
