It is no secret that I love decorating pumpkins! Every year I decorate my pumpkin in a different way and share it on here, if you're interested in other decorating ideas check out the designs I have done in the past here. This year I was inspired by the sequin sun hat everyone was rocking this summer and the tutorial I did for a DIY version. I wanted something simple, yet chic and a touch of gold and sequins was exactly what I was looking for. This pumpkin was super easy to make and makes for an adorable decoration. You can make this for your own home decor or even give it to a friend - it would also make a gift!
-Gold spray paint
-Wash your pumpkin and allow it to dry. (I used baby wipes on mine because it was too heavy for me to get in the sink and then I dried it off with a paper towel.)
-Spray paint the top third of the pumpkin gold, make sure the paint has a rough splattered edge. Allow to dry.
-Write out the halloween or fall phrase you choose on computer paper (I kept my short, sweet, and very Halloween).
-Take the X-ACTO Knife, use it to trace the words you drew on the paper, and it will cut into the paper. Doing this will create a stencil.
-Place the stencil you created on the pumpkin and trace the words with a pen, you will have to adjust the writing when tracing on the pumpkin so that it goes with the pumpkin's shape.
-Take the sequin trim and hot glue it to the words you just wrote on the pumpkin. It's easiest to add hot glue to small sections of the letters and glue the sequins down.
-Allow the hot glue to dry (which takes practically no time!).
