DIY hot glue painted pumpkin

dIY hot glue painted pumpkins

Are you ready for an easy fall DIY? Today I’m showing you how I upcycled these pumpkins using hot glue and paint to make a cozy fall tablescape. Scroll down to see how I made these DIY hot glue painted pumpkins. And for more pumpkin inspiration, check out my friend’s posts below because we’ve got a pumpkin roundup! The first leaf fell off the tree outside and Rick made fun of me because I started transforming our home into all things fall. This past weekend, I lit my fall candles, made a bundt cake and switched up our dining room decor for a fall tablescape. I found these faux pumpkins I had from last year. I wanted a little more of a muted neutral palette so decided to give them an upgrade with glue and paint. Here’s what I did.

DIY hot glue painted pumpkins

You will need:

  • faux pumpkins
  • hot glue
  • split wooden beads
  • acrylic paint
  • paint brush

Using hot glue, I made a few little designs. I had some leftover split wooden beads from my DIY beaded wreath and added those as well. I let them dry completely before painting.

I did a total of 3 coats, making sure to get in all the nooks and crannies and allowing them to fully dry between each coat.

Look what a little glue and paint can do!!!

5 Things I Bought Friday

This post contains affiliate links

It’s time for another 5 things I bought Friday!!!! Sharing my latest purchases this week.

Malibu Hair Care Hard Water Wellness– we have well water and my hair and scalp have been suffering. We recently got a new water filter which has made a world of difference but I still wanted to do a few treatments and get rid of the buildup. Having a sister who is also a hairdresser is a huge plus, she recommended Malibu Hair Care. I’ve done a couple of weekly treatments and been using their hard water buildup shampoo and conditioner. If you have well water I can’t recommend it enough!
