What’s your sign? Use rhinestone crystals to create a DIY Constellation Pumpkin that really shines!
The craft store flyer advertised Fun-kins at 60 percent off so I decided to buy another one. When I got to the craft store, all that was left were super sparkly, bright purple pumpkins. I love sparkle, but I was not looking to decorate a Vegas showgirl! Considering the cheap price tag, I brought one home anyway. It wasn’t anything a little spray paint couldn’t fix! So I painted it black and used rhinestones to create constellations on each side. My husband is a Cancer and I’m a Leo. One thing I noticed during my search was that each website seemed to connect their constellations differently. I guess connect-the-dots can get a little confusing in the big, night sky!
Step one: take a large, carvable pumpkin and use black spray paint to paint it black. Let dry completely.
Step two: plan your constellation. Use a pencil to mark off the “stars,” then use super glue to glue 7mm round crystal rhinestones onto your pencil markings.
Step three: connect the dots! Use a silver Sharpie marker to outline the constellation.
Step four: go over your outline with glow-in-the-dark paint so your constellation glows at night. (optional)
