Hey guys, it is my first post here at Craftster!  I wanted to share with you guys these cute baby pumpkins that I blinged out yesterday- I am so happy with them!



These are perfect for the people who don't enjoy all the "guts & glore" of Halloweenie!  I purchased some baby pumpkins at my local pumpkin farm, spray painted them in a glossy white and added a variety of rhinestones with glue.  They ended up being pretty reasonably priced too!  I purchased the pumpkins 4/$3.25, the 305 piece rhinestone set was $5.00 at Michaels and the spray paint was $4.00 after using my 40% coupon so you don't have to feel guilty about painting and blinging up your pumpkin that is going to rot in a few weeks anyways!  :-P

I made a video tutorial and put up some jazzy pics on my blog if you're interested in more detailed instructions.  I hope you have as much fun making these blinged out pumpkins as I do!!!!! Anyone bling out their own pumpkins before?  My rhinestones were sort of scattered, I think it would be cool to make designs with the stones.

I love them and you have spurred an idea.  To use glass beads/marbles and cut holes just big enough, to insert them tightly, of course a cleaned out pumpkin, then when lit light will shine through.  Thanks for sharing.
