DIY Studded Pumpkin Fall Decor

I love fall!  I love wearing cozy sweaters, cute boots and decorating my home for the cooler season.  I don’t know what it is about this season that just brings a dorky smile to my face!  (To be honest I love all seasons for different reasons -yes that rhymed lol) <– see dork!

Anywho I’ve been on a search to find items to decorate my home with for the fall season.  I wanted items that I would love for a long time, are super easy to make and won’t cost an arm and a leg.  I came across these orange pumpkins from the Dollar Tree and decided to buy them and see what I come up with at home. You may remember these pumpkins from a Dollar Tree Haul I did a few weeks ago.

Inspiration struck me while I was out one day and noticed a huge pumpkin with studs all over it.  I decided to give it a try and this is what I ended up with:

Not too shabby, eh?  I think they look so cute and go perfectly with my living room decor.  Below I just have them sitting on a candle stick from the Dollar Tree that I had from a few years ago.

To make your own you will need the following supplies:

  • foam pumpkins (from the dollar tree or craft store)
  • glitter
  • mod podge or school glue
  • craft paint (in color you prefer)
  • thumb tacks (i got mine from the dollar tree)
  • paint brush
  • foam brush


Using your foam brush paint your pumpkins and allow to dry.  You may need a few coats of paint to really whiten your pumpkin.  I did three coats, allowing for drying time in between.  It took me a total of 30 minutes for the paint to completely dry.

Next grab your mod podge (or glue) and dab a little of the glue to the stem of the pumpkin and add your glitter.  If your using mod podge, you may need to work quickly before it dries and in a ventilated area.  The smell is very strong and may get you sick.

And there you have it folks.  A nice inexpensive fall room decor.  This is a super simple craft project you can do while you’re watching TV or maybe get your kids involved!  I think they’d love it!

Until soon my friends!

Halloween Pinspiration

I absolutely love Halloween!  It’s the one time of year where we can let our alter egos out.   The same thought  goes for our home and decor.   Over the years my taste have changed immensely.  As a young adult {early 20s} I was totally enamored with all things scary.  I absolutely loved all things creepy and gory!  Now that I’m in my 30s.  I am definitely drawn to the more polished Halloween Glam look.  I love how clean everything looks…. sigh   Being that we are currently between homes, I can only slightly decorate my very cramped apartment.  But that doesn’t meant that I can’t pin all the beautiful Halloween inspirations I see in Blog Land!

I am in LOVE with this beautiful Candy Corn Wreath from Whipberry:


This Halloween Chair Banner from DIYnetwork is to ‘die’ for (yeah I went there):


How about this fun Black and White Halloween decor from Making the World Cuter:
