Since we’re on topic of cheerful Halloween decor, I thought I’d share with you how I added my own white, gold, and a touch of sparkle to it with this DIY sequin polka dot pumpkin project that… practically almost doubles as a disco ball. The last part was just a happy accident, and I don’t hate it (double plus, you don’t even have to hang this disco ball)!

I also used the white plastic pumpkins from craft stores so that I only have to apply sequins once and then enjoy them for a few more years before sequins cover the attic floor with the rest of the stowed away holidays things…

Materials

  • Loose gold sequins
  • Kraft glue

These might be the easiest, sparkly pumpkins you’ve ever made:  Apply the craft glue to the pumpkin in a circular motion, then pat a few sequins in place once the glue is tacky, being sure to cover the whole circle. Let them dry, and you’re all set.

I really love the way they turned out! Just the right touch of sparkle, plus they match the gold and white in the studio perfectly, if I say so myself!

    I for one think this is one of the classiest pumpkins I have ever seen. A unique twist on the traditional, big applause!

    Eeee! Super cute. I love ’em. I should have bought plastic pumpkins too, since I’m painting them anyways. Oh well.

    I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a glamorous Halloween DIY that involved a pumpkin…until now. These are so pretty and fun, Ash. They remind me of a disco ball, in a way. And you can’t go wrong with that!
