What you need:

– Carving pumpkin(s)

– Pumpkin carving tools

– Marker

– White spray paint

Draw your favorite gem shapes on your pumpkins after hollowing them out fully. Carve out your designs the way you would carve any jack-o-lantern, and finish by spraypainting your pumpkins white (or any other color of your choice) for a super-chic gemstone look! For the full tutorial with additional images and tips, see the original tutorial at Design Sponge.
