Halloween Rhinestone Pumpkin

What’s Halloween without pumpkins? Right! Instead of carving pumpkins add rhinestones for fun Halloween Rhinestone PumpkinHalloween home decor. Use either real pumpkins or foam pumpkins and “glam them up” with gems and ribbon. Pumpkins can be painted in a solid color like black or white or left orange. Finish with a beautiful Mini Bowdabra grosgrain bow with glitter spider center.

  • Black Spray Paint (if necessary)
  • Halloween Rhinestone Stickers
  • Glitter Spider
  • 7/8″ Purple Grosgrain
  • Mini Bowdabra
  • Hair Bow Tool & Ruler
