Sequin Letter Pumpkins

Plain pumpkins can be decked out in strands of silver, gold, and rose toned sequins. A single glimmering strand can easily be molded into cursive letters to spell out a saying, including an invitation to "trick or treat."

Introduction

This idea comes from our friend Manal Aman

materials

  • Craft pumpkins
  • Flat sequin strands
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Embroidery scissors
  • Pencil

steps

  1. Write cursive letters onto a pumpkin (or across a set of pumpkins) using a pencil.
  2. Secure lead end of ribbon strand with a dab of glue. Following your drawn letters as a guide, adhere strand along the lines while applying glue one section at a time. (Tip: At various points in the word, you may need to cut the ribbon and then continue forming the word.)
  3. Cut off strand and glue end. Dot any i's and cross any t's, and clean up any residual threads of hot glue.
