These studded pumpkins are the perfect addition to our fall decor! I was inspired to make these little guys while I slaved over my Fiber One Snackcessory clutch.
All you need is a hot glue gun, spray paint, and some pumpkins. First wash and dry the pumpkins. Then use the glue gun to create a design. I went with simple dots of glue to create the studded look, but you can make any design you’d like. Then give it a coat of spray paint, and you can even top them off with clear coat for extra protection.
Please make sure to use caution when using your hot glue, and only spray paint in a well ventilated area.
UPDATE:I am a finalist! If you like my design, please vote for me! You can vote once daily through the month of October! Just click here to vote.

For a little over a week now, I have been driving myself crazy trying to come up with an awesome design, and then I realized I was completely over thinking it. I finally took a deep breath and came up with something that is totally me, and i love it! Here’s how I created my gold studded scorpion snackcessory:
All I used was a glasses case, plastic scorpion, and a hot glue gun. I started by giving everything a base coat of gold. Then I covered the glasses case with dots of glue, to create the look of studs. Next, I glued the scorpion in place to resemble a clasp. To finish it off, I gave the whole thing a couple more coats of gold spray paint, and a couple coats of clear for extra protection. And viola! A fashionable way to keep snacks and a Fiber One bar in my bag!
I hope I’ve inspired you, now go get your craft on!
