HERE ARE THE RULES:

If you are having trouble figuring out all the different ways to keep this sucker up all year long then you and I are on the same page. It’s funny because when I started doing the rainbow pumpkin I really fell in love with it until…the matte black one was born.
…There is something sleek and sexy about an all black pumpkin, don’t you agree!
What You’ll Need (You can purchase all of the items I used in this post by clicking on the links below. These are affiliate links so ordering from them helps me buy more glitter and glue)
- A fake pumpkin (or 2 or 3)
- A clean, paintbrush
- Mod Podge
- Tim Holtz Glitter
- Glue Gun
- Krylon Chalkboard Paint
- Plastic Spiders
I love this glitter. It has a matte look to it and it goes perfect with the shiny spiders!
The first thing you want to do is place the spider on your finger, add mod podge to the end then sprinkle glitter on top.
Once your spiders are dry, grab a pair of scissors and cut the ring section off.
How gorgeous are these spiders…
Start applying the spiders on the pumpkin by adding a little hot glue to the back of them, then placing on the pumpkin. That simple. This is all we are doing with the cream pumpkin.
For the matte black pumpkin you will start by spraying the pumpkin with Krylon chalkboard paint. Make sure to do this in a well ventilated space.
Take your black spiders and repeat all the steps from the cream pumpkin. Once all of the spiders are glued on spray your pumpkin again with the chalkboard paint.
Here is a quick tip: Remove loose strands of hot glue with a heat gun, or a blow dryer. It heats up the thin strands then they magically disappear.
I hope you enjoyed this post and you make ton’s of fun spider pumpkins!
