It’s beginning to feel a lot like fall in North Carolina! The weather has started to cool down, the AC is off and the windows are open. To get ready for fall, I made a few seasonal changes to my bar cart. One of my favorite additions is a DIY studded craft pumpkin vase. Keep on reading to learn how to make your own pumpkin vase!
Silver and gold stud stickers (found at Michael’s)
Use the craft knife to carefully cut a hole in the top of the pumpkin. I used a pencil to sketch my path and then I cut around it. Next, following the lines of the pumpkin, places the stud stickers down the pumpkin. I rotated lines of gold and silver. When you have place studs all around the pumpkin, find a vase that will fit inside of the pumpkin. A quart sized mason jar worked well for the height of my pumpkin. I added water and flowers to the vase and my pumpkin was ready to display.
I pulled out a few additional fall decorations, like this cute metallic pumpkin, some orange straws and my seasonal favorite, candy corn. A few small touches can go a long way to bring a sense of all into a home.
Craft pumpkins are easy to work with and they won’t go bad a week after carving. Instead, it will last season after season. Have you decorated a craft pumpkin before or are you planning to this fall?
