Good Morning Y’all! I am participating in Craft Lightning Hot Glue week by showing you how to create decorative pumpkins made with hot glue. You can make and decorate just about anything with hot glue! In fact, my crafty friends Angie from the Country Chic Cottage and Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts wrote a book to show you how to make 50 projects. Want to learn more about the book? Be sure to read on to find out where to get your own copy and see even more great hot glue crafts from all the creative designers participating for Craft Lightning this week!
How to Create Decorative Pumpkins made with Hot Glue:
- Dollar Store Pumpkins
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Metallic Spray Paint
- Flat White Spray Paint or Primer
- Grey Craft Paint
- Paint Brush, Paper Towels, Cardboard or newspaper
Create designs on dollar store plastic pumpkins with your hot glue gun and glue sticks. I designed polka Dots, Drips, and a Spiderweb.
In a well-ventilated area, or outside base coat pumpkins with flat white spray paint. Let dry.
Once the base coat is dry, spray each pumpkin with a different metallic. Polka dots received a coat of Gold, Drips were painted Bronze and the Spiderweb was sprayed with Silver.
Once the top coat is dry, apply a coat of grey craft paint diluted with water, making sure to get in all the nooks and crannies. Remove most of the grey paint with paper towels, then set aside to dry.
Here are a few close-up photos…
