Halloween is almost here! Have you been to the pumpkin patch yet? The October weekends are winding down, so if you haven’t carved yourself a festive pumpkin yet, here’s a creative way to decorate all the while showing your passion for all things sparkly! We found this craft on Pinterest via Design Sponge, and today we’re sharing how to make your own Gem-O-Lanterns!
What you need:
– Carving pumpkin(s)
– Pumpkin carving tools
– 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!
