Howdy Jaderbugs! It’s hump day and I have something fun I want to share with you. I created this Watercolor and Paint Pumpkin the other night and I have a confession to make. Usually when I create a project for YOU I take step by step pictures of the process however today is different. The other night we were working late in the studio and I decided to “play” with a few craft pumpkins for shits and giggles. I honestly had no intention of doing a project I just felt like dressing up a boring pumpkin. Once it was complete I thought it was butt ugly. I know, can you believe I thought that!

When I finished the pumpkin I put in on a table in the studio and C passed by and said she loved it. I said, SURE you do (haha). After a few words I realized she ready did and that made me smile. It spent the night on the table and the next morning when we went back to the studio I passed by it and I truly fell in love. I think we all know that feeling looking at something the next day and realizing the beauty in it. I decided to share it with you but I don’t have any step out pictures. It was very easy to make so I will list all of the steps and hopefully that will work for you. Enjoy! Watercolor and Paint Pumpkin

Grab a kraft pumpkin from the craft store. You want to get the “cardboard” pumpkin so the watercolor will absorb in it. A plastic pumpkin will not work as well.

I used liquid water color, the pigment is much better. how to water color

I also used this interference blue paint in the end. I will explain the steps below. neon paint

Step 1: Add watercolor all over your pumpkin. You can use as many colors as you want. I used every color known to man kind. When you are done with this step let your watercolor dry completely.

Step 2: Now that your pumpkin is dry we can add our interference blue paint. You can use any other paint just make sure it’s iredescent. I used a palette knife to spread the paint all over my pumpkin. I wanted it to look sorta messy and thick. A brush will not create the same look y’all, trust me.

Step 3: I slathered (yes slathered) paint at the top of my pumpkin and sprinkled gold glass glitter all over it. Now if you don’t have glass glitter you can use any glitter you want but I will tell you if you have never used glass glitter then you are totally missing out.

Step 4: Sit back and stare at it. Seriously. Grab a drink and stare.

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
*Glitter Glue 
*Orange Glitter
*Head Pins
*Sequins (small and large)

If you don’t have any of the supplies I used in today’s post you can click on the links to purchase any of them!

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 PumpkinI 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.

Sequined Pumpkin how to Start placing them in your pumpkin starting the very top.

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


*Glue Gun
*Craft Brush
*Baker’s Twine

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.


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)

Happy Birthday Daddy! You are my rock and my world. I do not know where I would be without you and I will FOREVER be grateful for you. I can’t wait to spend many many more birthday’s with you!

Love, Your Pumpkin
