Happy October everyone and what better way to kick off the season than a crafty DIY? We had such a blast with this super simple 4-step pumpkin decor, adding a little seasonal chic to any home! Check out these tips for adorable pumpkins with a little Brick & Portal flair!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Pumpkins: Plastic or Real
- Playful Leaves
- Decorative Thumbtacks
(Psst: Find them all at Michael’s Craft Store.)
First: Outline your design or word onto your black pumpkin using chalk. We chose, “Boo” to get into the Halloween spirit. Hint: Chalk isn’t permanent - so you can easily erase as many times as you need without messing up the pumpkin! Perfect for all the perfectionists trying this project! ;)
Next: Once you’re happy with your chalk design you can decorate with glitter! Apply glue (or even just nail polish like we did) and sprinkle glitter for added sparkle! The glitter should stay perfectly to the glued areas, but keep in mind, this part may be messy!
Then: Apply decorative thumbtacks or pearl push pins to the pumpkins in whatever shapes your heart desires! The pins go in smoothly and can easily be removed if you want to re-arrange them! Try our adorable ampersand for a truly unique pumpkin!
Lastly: Tie some twine around the stem with some sparkly leaves to give them a little extra oomph!
