Cute as a Sparkle Button Pumpkins


I love Halloween pumpkins, especially the miniature variety. Today I bring to you a little pumpkin idea that you can whip up in 30 minutes or less! The results are super fun and whimsical and will take you from Halloween to Thanksgiving. Here’s how you make them!

Cute as a Sparkle Button Pumpkins

– Mini pumpkins
– Buttons in various sizes and shapes (I used ones with sparkle)
Aleene’s® Original Tacky Glue™
– Black Spray Paint
– mini rhinestones (optional)

How you do it:
1. Clean and remove stems from your pumpkins.
2. Play around with different stacks buttons, mini rhinestones, and other embellishments if you so do choose. Put them on top of your pumpkins and snap a quick photo. It helps you remember how you you arranged them.
3. Use Tacky Glue to glue the stacks together. Glue onto pumpkin. Let dry.

Bonus Tips:
– Arrange your buttons into a faux stem for a fun look!
– You can also further decorate the pumpkins with dimensional paint (I like Scribbles) by making dots and stripes down the veins of the pumpkin.

Doodle Pumpkin

So, if you are totally drained and don’t feel like carving a pumpkin, why not attack it with a permanent marker? That’s right, a pumpkin doesn’t have to be carved or painted on, it can just be made totally cool with a Sharpie. Use a fine, wide or regular tip…whatever floats your boat!

I simple drew different designs like skulls and crossbones, words, a spooky tree, swirls, stars, tombstones, and more. Just use your natural doodling style and have fun! You will prob. want to spray it with some spray sealer so the designs don’t rub off or get weathered.

Hope you enjoyed this super easy project!

Until next time Swellions!
