Paint and Beaded Pumpkins

These pumpkins are a great example of how you can take dollar store merchandise and turn them into cute accessories for your coffee table or book shelf. I also love them because they will last throughout the season. Follow the instructions below to make your own.

Paint your pumpkin, I used black and bronze acrylic paint. A useful tip is to use push pins on the bottom so that the paint doesn't touch anything as it dries.

Paint faux leaves to match your pumpkin.  

Then you can embellish them with sequins and beads. I used clear drying glue to make them stick.

You can even make a black and gold pumpkin to support Saints football!
