My pumpkins got a sparkly makeover for Halloween and I’m pretty smitten with my new Halloween vignette.
I’m a big fan of black and white Halloween decorations, just take a look at my Mummy and Me Halloween Soiree (which by the way was featured in the October issue of Yum Food & Fun for Kids Magazine!) While black and white is classic every now and then you have to add a little bit of pizzazz and #trickyourpumpkin. And in my opinion you can never go wrong with gold glitter!
Now through October 31 you can #TrickYourPumpkin and enter your creations for a chance to win a $250 Michaels gift card and Plaid products each Friday throughout the month of October. Grab a pumpkin, real or faux, jazz it up and then share your pumpkin creations via Instagram tagging Michaels for a chance to be featured and win!
I know I say this a lot, but this Halloween vignette is a super easy project and you can recreate your own black and white pumpkins in no time flat. First let’s take a look at how to make the gold polkadot glitter pumpkin.
Pour some glue on a paint tray or plate. Dab the 1″ round sponge brush in the glue and then dab on the pumpkin.
Sprinkle the gold glitter on the glue spot and gently shake off the excess. Keep repeating until your pumpkin is covered in polkadots.
Brush the steam with glue and sprinkle gold glitter on it. Once it is dry tie a black and white striped bow around the stem. Viola! That’s it, now your plain white pumpkin is ready to glitter and shine.
I made a few more #trickyourpumpkin creations by simply spray painting one gold and adding the word EEK in vinyl to another.
To complete my black and white Halloween decor I used an old window pain and the new window cling vinyl from Cricut. This stuff is pretty cool and just like vinyl easy to use. I found this Halloween word art in the Cricut Design Space. I set my Explore to cut the vinyl as a mirror image.
Lay the image directly on the window and rub the paper liner to adhere it. Gently peel the paper liner off to reveal your design.
I used a black painted frame from Poppyseed Projects, and hung it with black and white ribbon to frame out the Halloween word art. I added a window cling spider web to the corner for the finishing touch on my classy, fun new black and white Halloween decor.
