Hi friends! As a part of Michaels Makers, we are participating in a monthly challenge or craft using products from Michaels! This month is Faux Pumpkins!
We were super excited about this one because we love decorating for Fall and Halloween so today we’re going to show you how to make a super cute and easy Halloween tablescape and how to decorate faux pumpkins for Halloween using craft supplies. In a couple weeks, we will show you how to transform your Halloween tablescape into a Fall / Thanksgiving tablescape! A lot of these elements can be used for both Halloween and Thanksgiving!
We like to call this Glam Halloween! When we think of Halloween we think of fun fall decor with a touch of black and a smidge of creepy and that’s exactly what we did here. You know by now we wouldn’t do it without some gold spray paint and some gold glitter. Obviously. 😉
For materials we gathered a few supplies from Michaels to get create our Faux Pumpkin Centerpiece:
Faux Pumpkins – they also have these awesome Half Pumpkins that you can create some wall decor, a door hanging or a pumpkin mount! You can even do the techniques we teach you here today on the half pumpkins and hang it on your front door! SO fun!
These are super easy! First, spray paint your pumpkins and allow to dry. Then embellish using Adhesive Rhinestones.
In just a couple easy steps, we took the orange faux pumpkins to another level!
Gold is always a good idea + a little sparkle… Winner!
Next, we made these darling little place cards for each table setting.
Hot Glue and Glue Gun
Placecards (We made these on our Silhouette Cameo)
1. First, spray paint your pumpkins and allow to dry.
2. Hot Glue on a mini clothespin with the opening toward the top
3. Clip on your cute tags and voila!
Wouldn’t these be great for Thanksgiving too? We used gold chargers, white plates and cut a sheet of 12×12 glittered cardstock into 1/4ths to use to layer the plate. When decorating a tablescape, the more layers the better! Here’s another look at more of our tablescape!
Guess what is also kind of amazing? Every item (except the plates, cake stands and black and white fabric table runner) is from Michaels! Their Halloween decor this year is amaaaazing!
This gold skeleton and sparkly spider are a favorite for sure!
Can we just take a moment for these candlesticks and the candelabra!? Ob-sessed! Oh! The candelabra was silver but we spray painted it gold.
