Fake Pumpkins with Bling

Good afternoon everyone.  It's a late Sunday afternoon and I just got home from celebrating my husband's, grandpa's and Dad's birthday party at our daughter Jackie's house.  All the grandbabies were there and all the kids and we had a delightful afternoon.  The grandbabies are getting a little older and this year they are really getting excited for Halloween.  It should be a very eventful day and boy will there activity.  Well I had picked up these pumpkins at the DOLLAR STORE and thought they would look cute around the house for the fall but I of course had to add a little BLING to them.  Here is the before picture:

I had some sequins hanging around the house that I had bought at a garage sale thinking that sometime they might come in handy.
 So I got out my paint and painted them white and starting applying sequins to them by simply using Elmer's glue
 This pumpkin I added some jute rope to wrap the stem of the pumpkin and ran it down the sides of the pumpkin.  When the sequins had dried I added an earring for the leaf.

 This was also painted white but not as many sequins on it and I added 2 black earrings for the leaves and painted the stem of the pumpkin a brown color.

 My daughter Jackie had given me this large pumpkin and had stenciled Happy Halloween on it and had added little silver balls to the lettering which some had fallen off.  I just decided to hot glue some sequins also to where the little balls had been.  Some more bling!  I think they look just right in my entrance way greeting guests and family for the Fall.
What do you think?  Better or worse.  Until next time, Dianne......
