I saw this magazine in the grocery store today.

Anyway...
I think it looks awesome! But, all I could think that was it was probably a waste of $20 worth of embellishments!!

If you used liquid pearls, it would be cheaper

oh my - that would be a little pricey - I bet puff paint would work too. Might be fun to try. I know I've painted a picture onto a pumpkin.

I'm actually going to do this! Probably on the weekend

I'm NOT using a real pumpkin though, I am getting one of those heavy plastic one's from M's with my coupon. You know those really realistic looking ones? I'll put a pic up when I do it.

It is pretty but yeah, a bit wastful! But the plastic/foam pumpkin from M's say, now THAT's and IDEA!!!

Also, there is a blog out there (can't remember which one!) that has pumpkins decorated with vinyl cut with the cricut!

Happy Halloween!!!

The foam pumpkin makes more sense.

When I was searching for this photo, I found this one. It's upholstery tacks (another expensive endeavor, I think).

That is a really cool idea to decorate pumpkins. I may have to try it with some puff paint or something much cheaper than Prima Bling. I am not wasting my bling on pumpkins!

That is my thought exactly!!

I also wonder if the adhesive would stick to a real pumpkin. ??

I can't see the 1st picture (what magazine is that in) but the foam pumpkin looks really cool.

I have used my scrapbooking supplies on the terra cotta pots that I paint. However, I sell those pots so I can at least replace those supplies with out a huge frown.

That's weird. It's a better Homes and Gardens special interest publication. I had to search a while to find the image online. I'll pm it to you.

It does look really cool and sparkly, but I agree that it's kind of a waste of bling. Especially expensive Prima bling! Plus, then you don't get to eat all the yummy seeds inside, which IMHO, is the best part of pumpkin carving.

Those are really cool, but I'm like the rest of you...not spending that much on a real pumpkin. Now, I am thinking that it would be pretty cool on the foam ones, but if I bring home another pumpkin my dh may come untrained, lol!

pssst....you should hide it in the trunk of your car until he isn't paying attention and run inside with it.

NOT that I've EVER done that or anything!
