Last minute DIY Halloween Ideas

Add sparkle to your holiday decor.

This glitzy pumpkin featured in the photo was created using a synthetic pumpkin purchased at Michaels Craft store. It was spray painted orange. Then it was sprayed with adhesive and the glitter applied immediately after. Once dried embellishments were added.

To create this lollipop pumpkin use a synthetic pumpkin because the moisture in real pumpkin flesh gets the lollipop paper stick soggy. Use a drill with a 9/16 bit to make the holes or use an awl. Mark holes with a tape measure placing holes 1-3/4 inches apart. Great holiday centerpiece or at your front door for treats for the trick-or- treaters.
Wrap table legs in colorful stripped stockings and add some witchy type shoes.
