Glam Sequined Pumpkin
Make an ordinary pumpkin sparkle with the addition of sequins or shimmering glass beads.
Materials and Tools:
small foam pumpkin
sequin pins or craft glue
sequins or glass beads
- Cover the surface of the pumpkin with sequins or glass beads, attaching them with craft glue or sequin pins. This project could be completed with a fresh pumpkin rather than a foam pumpkin, but a foam pumpkin is preferable because it's much easier to stick with pins than a fresh pumpkin. Plus, it won't spoil so it can be used year after year. Tip: For a stylish variation, use contrasting colored sequins to spell out letters or to create a design.
