DIY White Jeweled Pumpkin

Do you remember the pumpkin that turned in to Cinderella’s BEAUTIFUL white carriage? Well I do. And a couple weeks ago when I stumbled across a pretty white pumpkin with the words “Happy Halloween” on it, I was instantly transported to a realm of up-scale, chic and modern whimsical Halloween decor. I was snapped out of it by the $70 price tag.

So, I set about making this. This is a dollar store pumpkin and some press on jewels. Let me show you how it’s done.

You will need:

  • Foam pumpkin
  • Scissors
  • Mod Podge
  • Paintbrush
  • White paint
  • Clear polyurethane spray
  • Tape
  • Inkjet Printer
  • 1 sheet of printer paper
  • White tissue paper
  • Craft glue and Jewels (or stick on jewels)

How To Do It:

    1. Starting with the pumpkin, coat it in white paint. This may take more than one coat.
    2. While waiting for your pumpkin to dry, tape a square of the tissue paper on all sides to a sheet of printer paper.
    3. Carefully insert the tissue paper taped to regular paper into the printer, so that the tissue paper will be printed on.
    4. Print the the words of your choice in the font of your choice. This might take a couple tries to get right. My tissue paper got caught a couple times, and I had to start over.
    5. Lightly spray the words with polyurethane spray. This will help prevent the words from smearing when you apply the Mod Podge. I sprayed it with 3 coats.
    6. Once both your pumpkin and your words are dry, remove the words from the regular paper and trim the excess tissue paper away.
    7. Spread a thin layer of Mod Podge where you would like the words to be on the pumpkin and place the tissue paper words carefully on the pumpkin.
    8. Mod Podge over the words and the rest of the pumpkin- let dry.
    9. Using craft glue, glue the jewels into a swirl design. You can even save yourself some time by getting stick-on jewels.
