Elegant Pumpkins

October 3, 2012 by Jenny Melrose

I’m not quite sure if I’ve professed my LOVE for Fall yet, but let me tell you I look forward to October 1st almost as much as Christmas.  I love being able to decorate with all of the spooky creatures of Halloween.  I showed you my Ghoulish Ghosts earlier this week that haunt the trees in front of our house.  Today I want to show you a part of my witch inspired mantle.  These Elegant Pumpkins were a cinch.

I started out with my Golden Fall Pumpkins and gave them an entirely new look.

I used black spray paint to cover the white acrylic paint of the pumpkins.  Once the spray paint was dry I used Glitter & Gem glue to create the swirled pattern on the pumpkins.  I then sprinkled silver sparkles over the glue and let the glue set over night.

The final touch was a cute orange with black polka dot bow that I hot glued to the stem.  I love how cute them came out and the bow tied the rest of the mantle together!  I’ll be showing the rest of the witch mantle soon.  I promise!
