1. Prep the Pumpkins
Begin by cutting a round divot from the stem end of each foam pumpkin using a craft knife. This divot will hold the decorative elements and the pumpkin will serve as a stable base for the place card holder.
2. Paint the Pumpkins
Use acrylic pink paint to coat each pumpkin's surface evenly. Allow them to dry completely, ensuring that the color is consistent.
3. Paint the Hands and Arms
While the pumpkins are drying, spray paint both sides of the skeleton arms with gold spray paint, providing an opulent touch to the creepy-glam aesthetic. Set them aside to dry.
4. Assemble Pick and Pumpkin
When the pumpkins and skeleton arms are dry, insert a skeleton arm upright into the divot of each foam pumpkin. Make sure the arm stands firmly inside the divot.
5. Add Pebble Filler
Pour some of the black glass rock vase filler into the divot and use the glue gun to secure some the rocks around the skeleton arm until you get to the top of the divot. This will add stability and add geode-crystal sparkle.
6. A Touch of Gold on the Rim
Use gold acrylic paint and a small paintbrush to paint a thin line along the top edge of each pumpkin. This touch of gold will accentuate the glass rock filler.
7. Velvet Touch
Cut the black velvet ribbon into appropriately sized pieces for bows. Use the glue gun to carefully attach a bow to each of the skeleton arms. Finally, insert printed place cards into the skeleton hand on each place card holder. This eerie yet stylish way of seating guests adds a fun and spooky element to your Halloween table.
