DIY Glitter Pumpkin Wall Hanging Guest Post by Katie of Running With A Glue Gun

Hi Everybody! I'm Katie from Running With A Glue Gun and I'm so happy to be guest blogging at Mary Rebecca. One of my favorite things about October is decorating and of course all the pumpkins. So today I'm going to share with you guys, how to make a Glitter Pumpkin Wall Hanging.

Halloween scrapbooking paper
Fake pumpkin
Picture frame
Foam brush
Craft knife
Mod Podge
Ribbon, buttons etc.
Hot glue gun ( not pictured) 

Step 1: Cut your pumpkin in half, I use a craft knife to cut mine in half but you could use a sharp knife, plastic knife or if you really wanted to get into it a saw. It will really depend on how your pumpkin is made, luckily my pumpkin was Styrofoam so it was easy to cut ( I got my pumpkin from Big Lots). You will really have to experiment to see what works best for you. 

Step 2: Then take one half of your pumpkin and cover it in Mod Podge ( picture 1), then dump a ton of orange glitter on top ( picture 2). Once your pumpkin in covered in glitter, set it aside to dry. 

Step 3: While your pumpkin is drying, take the glass out of your frame and cut a piece of scrapbooking paper to go inside your frame. 

Step 4: When your pumpkin is dry, take your hot glue gun and apply some glue to the back of your pumpkin. Then adhere it to your scrapbooking paper thats in your frame (picture 1). 

Now you could stop their but I added a little spider in the corner of my frame ( picture 2).

Then your ready to set it up or hang it on your wall!


Mary: Katie, this DIY is too cute! I love your little added bonus of the tiny spider :D
Thanks so much for sharing
