Can I Bling A Pumpkin? ..Oh, Yes I Can. (Halloween Gift Idea)


Have a little faith.  You know if anyone can bling up a pumpkin, it would be me. 
It’s actually a great little gift idea if you know someone who would appreciate a little dazzle with their candy.
You’ll need a few things first..
A jam/jelly mason jar with the lid
A small pumpkin
black paint
metallic craft paint, I went with silver
spray glitter
self adhesive rhinestones
ribbon
a hot glue gun
your candy of choice
 
Directions:
Paint your pumpkin black and let dry.
Next, paint the little metallic dots and let dry again. 
Place a rhinestone in the middle of each dot and then spray the heck out of it with glitter. 
Try not to spray everything in your house with glitter..it’s tempting, I know.
Put the glitter down and step away.
Then,  grab your cordless hot glue gun.

What?..you don’t have a cordless hot glue gun?..well, I am sorry, but all the cool kids have one.
So I guess you’ll have to use your regular, old, hot glue gun…but you really need to break free of your limitations.
Fill the jar with candy and then place the lid on top.
Slather the hot glue on the lid of the mason jar and affix the pumpkin to the top.
Tie a pretty bow around the whole thing.
You now have a cute little gift idea for maybe..a teacher, coach, UPS man.
(Oh, like he wouldn’t be thrilled to get a blinged out jar of candy..come on.)
Here is a close look at the pumpkin so you can appreciate it’s beauty..

Cute, huh?
Now, I have the rest of the bag of candy corn to eat, so I’ve gotta get busy.
Have A Great Evening!
