October Time Crafternoon

October is here! Time to bring out the scarves, cardigans, costumes, and pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING! Okay, confession time.. I have been burning my B&BW Pumpkin Latte candle and eating pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin doughnuts, pumpkin spice hershey kisses, and pumpkin cookies since the middle of September. I couldn't help myself! Even though the weather here in Las Vegas is still warm enough for me to lay out by the pool, I am trying to create my own season of fall. I can't get enough of fall and Halloween! Oh and Hocus Pocus! Can't wait to watch it.

So with that said, I thought I would share some of the October/Fall love with a quick crafternoon pumpkin tutorial. (What's a crafternoon you might say? It's simply crafting in the afternoon. Or any time really).

What you need:

Tacky Glue
Plastic Pumpkins
Small Foam Brush

So my pumpkins started out looking like this. Not so pretty. Of course I thrifted them for cheap.

I started by cutting off the awful leaf and curly bit. I then used an old brush to paint on tacky glue. I used a paper bag underneath to reuse the extra glitter because when you're using glitter, it's gonna get messy. I went for a gradual ombre type look for this pumpkin.



For the other pumpkin, pictures didn't really happen... My bad. It was easy enough to cover the pumpkin with a few coats of white paint. I then applied the tacky glue in a circle on the pumpkin, sprinkled with glitter, and bam.. Two chic pumpkins right in time for the holidays.



Stay tuned for more Halloween tricks and treats!
