As you know by now, I enjoy going to thrift stores and finding items and turning them into treasures. I haven’t always done this. It has just been within the last 2 years that I have started this new hobby or obsession. (hehe) I am excited to show you my latest thrift find DIY bling pumpkin. I have been out shopping, really just looking to see the Fall and Halloween decor. I love the feeling of Fall and all the glitter and bling that now adorn the decorations.
I bought this lovely for 75 cents.
I like her chippy look and texture. But, after seeing all the bling and glitter, I thought, “Why not fix this pumpkin up and add a little bling?”
I started off by painted her white, using a flat wall paint.
I have these beautiful rhinestone sticker strips from David Tutera. They are in the wedding accessory aisle at Michaels.
You know how much I love blue, so instead of green, I thought a blue stem would be the perfect touch. The sticker strips are really easy to use. Cut the size you need, peel off the back and you are set.
Once I had my stem ready, I was ready to add the orange bling. I cut strips of 2 and 3 wide for variety.
And Voila! A DIY Bling Pumpkin is just minutes.
For pennies, I now have my own version of bling pumpkin. What do you think?? Doesn’t she look great??
I am happy to share my DIY Bling Pumpkin with you. I love reading your comments and try to respond to everyone.

I’m reading this as I sip my pumpkin spiced coffee, so I’m really in the pumpkin mood! I love how you pimped your pumpkin. I’ve just now started going to thrift stores myself (besides donating). Seems we’ve been missing out on a lot! Thanks for sharing your beautiful pumpkin. And I didn’t even know about the bling stickers! Thanks for that info, as well!
Thanks so much Alli! It is a fun and creative project. Thanks for stopping by today!! xoxo
