Halloween Glitter Pumpkin Topiary


 Is that not the cutest "boo" you've ever seen?

I mean seriously...

Don't you just love how glittery and sparkalicious they are??

Yes, sparkalicious is a word.  I invented it and I'm owning it!

Back off!

A few weeks ago when I was at Hobby Lobby I spotted some pretty awesome pumpkins on sale for 40% off.

So naturally, I loaded them up in my basket.  It would have been wrong not too.

Pumpkins on sale + Halloween just around the corner = must buy pumpkins!

See how that works out?

So...I had my pumpkins in my basket and I came across these cute scrolly little wooden letters...

(Insert light bulb going off in head here)

And it hits me!

GLITTER!

So here's what they started out as....


I bought some Krylon Glitter Blast in Orange and Starlite.

First I sprayed all the pumpkins I was going to blast with orange glitter...

I only needed 2 coats on those and they were good to go!

On the pumpkins I glittered in Starlite (black) I ended up having to spray paint in black 1st, then blast on 2 coats of the Starlite.

Then I sprayed the letters and hot glued them to the pumpkins.

Once they were all dry, I stacked them all on top of each other and wah-la!

Halloween Topiary!


And just because I'm me and I'm all into bows...


I gave it a bow topper!


Yea, I'm cool like that!


This was a super easy...SUPER glittery project!

So tell me what you think...are you going to make one too?

  10. Question: Are the pumpkins fake? What did you do with the stems so they would stack? I have in-laws coming Sunday which means Saturday will be doing this project for my front porch. LOVE IT!

    1. Hey there Annette...yes the pumpkins are fake. The pumpkins that I bought at Hobby Lobby had holes in the bottom of them so that I could just stick the stems inside and stack them like that. Super Easy! I'm sue that you could easily cut holes in the bottoms of pumpkins if they don't already come like that though :)

      Have fun with it!
