How to Make a Fun, Easy and Thrifty Halloween DIY Topsy Turvey Glam Pumpkin!

Hi everyone!
I thought I would kick off October 1st with one of my most favorite, easy, thrifty and fun Halloween DIY projects

Have you done any Halloween decorating this year? I don’t do a lot but, I like to have some fun things around the house. This was a fun and thrifty Halloween project, The Topsy Turvy Glam Pumpkins!

I thought it would be fun to “stack” some glittery pumpkins I bought at Walmart (.97 cents each).

What I used:
  • 3 different shaped foam pumpkins
  • a black boa
  • Wood skewers
  • Hot Glue
  • Scissors
Yes, this is inexpensive and easy….two of my favorite things!

Decide the order you want to stack your pumpkins and cut a length of the boa to glue around the bottom of your bottom pumpkin.

Grab a wooden skewer and you second pumpkin.

I put a little hot glue on the bottom of the orange pumpkin and then pushed the wooden skewer through both the orange and the purple pumpkin.

Snip off the excess wooden skewer. Then do the same with the top pumpkin (a little glue and another wooden skewer through the top and second pumpkin).

Now snip off a few feathers and glue them in between the pumpkins. This will hide your little stub of wooden skewer.

I sat mine on top of a candlestick.
