Simple and Classy Pumpkin Update

As I was pulling out the rest of my Halloween decorations, I came across the white pumpkins I used on my Raven Inspired Front Porch.  Seriously, I have pumpkins coming out of my ears!!  I decided they needed an update.  Nothing flashy, just a Simple and Classy Pumpkin Update!

Wanna create your own Simple and Classy Pumpkin Update?

Here’s what you need:

White pumpkin {real or fake}

Paint and paintbrush

Martha Stewart Metallic Trim

Hot glue gun


Embellishment of your choosing!  {I picked some striped orange and black ribbon.}

I started by repainting the pumpkin stem.  It got a little battered and bruised last Halloween.


Then, armed with my hot glue gun and a pair of scissors, I got to work.  To create this look, I used the new Martha Stewart Metallic Trim.  Simply hot glue a crease on your pumpkin and begin adhering the trim.  Continue this process all the way around the pumpkin.


Finally I add this cute black and orange bow!

How simple is that?  The great part?  You can easily remove the trim next year and make a whole new look!  And since I’m all about the sparkly this year, this metallic trim totally works!
