Glitter Pumpkins, Pumpkin Painting, and More Ideas to Spice up Your Jack-O-Lanterns!

{ By Miranda Martin }

Want to spice up your yearly jack-o-lantern with more glam? From painted pumpkins to glitter-dipped gourds, we have tips on how to make your pumpkin decor the talk of the town this Halloween season.

Glitter pumpkins

A fad that has taken off in the last few years, glitter pumpkins bring the sparkle to your Halloween celebrations! Making a glitter pumpkin is as simple as using a spray adhesive and craft glitter, and boom– you have a glam, glittery pumpkin in seconds! Just spray adhesive onto your pumpkin (after placing it on a lot of newspaper or other protected surface, of course), and use a spoon to sprinkle loads of glitter onto your Halloween masterpiece. 

“Punctured” patterned pumpkins

A personal favorite of mine, “punctured” patterned pumpkins are a creative, artistic twist on the regular carved pumpkin. Essentially, you use a puncturing tool to poke small holes into your pumpkin, creating a “light-up” or “starry” appearance across the surface of the pumpkin that dazzles and delights. You can get really creative with this, but even small, uniform holes around the surface of your pumpkin will look great when lit up with a candle inside. Check out an example here of a simple, punctured pumpkin that looks like a starry night, indeed: https://www.gardenista.com/posts/pumpkin-carving-milky-way-edition/

Rhinestone pumpkins

Everyone with a Bedazzler, this one is for you. If you’ve been itching to use your bedazzling tool or hot-glue gun on something other than high-heels or studded jeans, why not use them on your pumpkin this Halloween season? YouTuber Bree Taylor shows a simple, step-by-step guide to making a bedazzled, rhinestone pumpkin here, and it’s easy to do with no carving involved!

Painted pumpkins (with a twist!)

Still a fan of the classic pumpkin painting? If carving pumpkins isn’t your thing this is always a great go-to, but why not give it an artistic twist this Halloween season? There are plenty of great stencils out there and examples of how to recreate classic paintings and more on your pumpkins, including Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ and more

No matter what your pumpkin looks like this Halloween season, have fun and get creative with it!
