Horchow Bejeweled Pumpkins Knockoff

In case you didn't see it on Sew Dang Cute, I made it through the first round of Crafting With the Stars.


YAY!  When I saw that the first round was going to be knockoffs, I actually said crap.  Mainly because I don't really do knockoffs and I had NO idea what I was going to do.  For days I was just panicked over what  I was going to do and how, if I didn't come up with anything, I wasn't going to make it to the next round.  Finally I saw these pumpkins from Horchow.


Aren't they pretty?  And only $195.  Yeah that is not a typo.  Those are some spendy pumpkins.  Anyway, here are my pumpkins.


They are really easy and you should be able to make your own set of 3 for about $20.  
You will want to get yourself some of the foam type pumpkins.  I got 2 at the good old dollar store and one at Micheals.

   
First you will want to spray paint your pumpkins white.  Then you just add the crystals.  At first I bought a bunch of those stick on crystals (you can see them in the background of the picture above.)  But then I found this bag of rounded acrylic crystals ($7 for a bag that will cover all the pumpkins you would ever want to cover) It was a little more work to hot glue them on, but I actually think they looked better.



Now onto round 2.


Let's hope I can get my creative juices flowing.

BTW, did you see those amazing round one projects?  That dresser was amazing.

  1. I like yours better than the expensive ones! Well done! I also like the chandelier incorporated into your Halloween decor. I may have to steal this idea!
