Simply Sparkly Pumpkins

DSC_1328

Sometimes the best crafts aren't ones you spend hours making. They are just easy, breezy, and beautiful (sorry Cover Girl). The other night I wanted to jazz up some mini pumpkins while at a friends house. I had brought over materials, but not a lot, but did have on hand some sequins and some Aleene's Original Tacky Glue and truth be told, that was all I really needed! All I did was just add a bit of glue and glue on each sequin for the star polka dot ones, and for the cascading sequin pumpkin, I realized just kinda dumping the sequins on there and then repositioning them worked quite nicely. I drizzled the glue down the side of the pumpkin for the clumpy sequin look on the sides.

These are so cute! What a great idea!

The Craft-Arty Kid said...

I love the sequin one, it' fabulous. What a great idea

Andrea @Oasis Accents said...

I LOVE these both! Even though I'm a huge star fan, I totally am gaga over the sequins. I had considered sequins myself but only have the standard red, green, blue and silver. Not anywhere near as pretty.

Tricia @ SweeterThanSweets said...
