Make a Sequined Pumpkin

What is the first thing that comes to my mind when I think about sequins? Well of course I think of my freshmen homecoming dress.

Let me tell you that thing was blinged out! I will post a picture at the bottom of this post for you to see, don’t judge… TeeHee

Today I will show you how to make a Sequined Pumpkin.

YOUWILLNEED *Plastic Pumpkin

How gorgeous are these sequins! I used the same iridescent color but in two sizes. It looks good when there is a small one in front of the big one.

Sequined Pumpkin I am using gold head pins. I like the gold because it adds some color to the sequins and dresses up everything.

The first thing you will do is place a small sequin on the pin then the large one right on top of that one.

This is what it will look like once you have completely finished it. It’s so pretty I could eat it. Well not really but you get my point!  Sequined Pumpkin

If you want to bedazzle it some more grab some glitter glue. If you don’t have glitter glue you can use any glue you have.  Glitter Glue

Coat the stem with glue then sprinkle with glitter. I used orange but you can use any color that you want.  DIY Sequined Pumpkin

It’s really that simple. The good news is we still have Thanksgiving to decorate for and you could make some gold and brown ones. I will warn you that they are very time consuming however they are worth it in the end.

When you are saving them up after the holiday’s make sure to place each one in a single ziplok bag so they don’t get dingy.

Quote of the day:
“It is the first duty of the citizen to be calm.

Won’t you take me to… FUNKY TOWN with FUNKY ROCKS… with FUNKY MAGNETS…

You get it, I am pretty excited about these babies. However I never even got to put them up because dad took them to Hawaii and already gave them away! He said all of his friends there would love them. I was hoping he would of “forgot” to give them away. Eh. He didn’t.

Good thing is it’s only rocks! I can make TON’S more Jaderbugs! Let’s get started on our halloween rock magnets

Halloween Rock Magnets

 INGREDIENTS: 

*Paint
*Glue Gun
*Craft Brush
*Baker’s Twine
*Rocks
*Magnets

Make sure you click on the links of ingredients to order these items!

The first thing you will do is paint your first coat of paint onto the rock. I like to do one half, let it dry then do the other half. Remember your first coat will be translucent to a certain degree.

I love taking pictures of my paint. It looks so pretty! NO. I don’t want to eat it, today.

Once your rocks are fully coated you can start painting your design on them. I really enjoy whimsical, organic designs.  Remember if you are putting different designs on your rocks to let each color dry thoroughly. I won’t show you the rocks that threw in a pile because I thought I had magical brushes that would not mix the paint together.

HAHA

To make the little designs with your baker’s twine I like to start by wrapping them around my finger like this. If you find an easier way please do that!

I know. I was lazy. I did NOT paint the  backs of my rocks. I mean, had I known they were taking a trip to Hawaii I would of.  But, once you are done painting and gluing you can place your magnet with an adhesive backing to the back of the rock. Where ever you choose to put your baker’s twine just hot glue it down.

This one kinda reminds me of Charlie Brown’s shirt. I love the way the black and white baker’s twine makes everything pop!

I am totally in LOVE with my little pumpkin. Guess I will make a new one!
(Insert shaking head here, haha)

I have this vintage serving plate in our kitchen and I use it to post important notes. These little magnet’s were cute on it.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, see ya in the next post! Make sure you come visit me in these places too! (look below this line, hehe)
