DIY Glam Glitter Pumpkins

Hello Uncommon Designs readers!  It’s Heather from Setting for Four and I’m so excited to be a new holiday contributor for Bonnie and Trish!  Pinch me!!

Today I’m sharing a quick and easy pumpkin decoration idea: Glam Glitter Pumpkins!


As an interior design consultant, I love to decorate!  I also love glamour and shine!!  These bling pumpkins are the perfect way to add a touch of beautiful sparkle to your fall or Halloween decor.

A designer ‘rule of thumb’ is that every room needs a touch of black. These pumpkins, dressed in black, are the perfect way to bring this stylish color into a room and can be easily mixed with adorable white baby boo pumpkins and regular orange pumpkins too!!

Just 3 supplies are required…not only are these quick to make (great for last minute decorating!) but they are super budget friendly too!



Rhinestones – these are also called ‘Glitter Stickers’ and are packaged as rows of rhinestones on a sheet.

Start by spray painting the pumpkins with black spray paint. Use 2 coats and let the first coat dry before applying the second coat.

When the pumpkins are completely dry: peel off a row of rhinestone stickers and apply them about 1/3rd from the bottom of the pumpkin.  I just eyeballed it!  Continue until you’ve made a complete ring around the pumpkin.


Add another 2 rows of rhinestones above the first row, separating each row by a 1/8 inch space.


I love the sparkle!!!


See how easy and quick they are to make?  Once your pumpkins are spray painted, adding the glitter is a great DIY to do in front of the TV watching a football game (like I did! 😀  )


I absolutely love them!  A perfect touch of understated glam and fun!

I added several of these DIY Glam pumpkins and a bed of copper colored oak leaves to my DIY antiqued dough bowl.

I love the touch of glam they bring to my living room.

I can’t wait for the nights to cool down so that I can light our fireplace and cozy up in one of our club chairs with a warm throw blanket and a mug of hot chocolate..and admire these glitter pumpkins as they sparkle in the firelight!


These glam pumpkins are also a great idea for fall and Halloween tablescapes too!

Happy fall everyone!
