Easy Coastal Pumpkins

Easy Coastal Pumpkins


  1. Pumpkin
  2. Glitter blast spray paint (I used Sapphire shimmer and Sparkling waters) I purchase mine HERE
  3. Hot glue and glue gun
  4. Sea Shells, Starfish and other embellishments
  5. Hemp or twine
  6. Spray Glue or other glue
  7. Sand
  8. Scissors
  9. White spray paint (to give your pumpkin a base coat)


    1. Clean the outside of your pumpkin
    2. Spray a base coat (I used a white spray paint)
    3. Spray your pumpkin with your 2 blue glitter sprays (I used the dark for the bottom and faded the lighter blue up the top)
    4. Once dry spray or apply an adhesive to the top of the pumpkin and add sand
    5. Wrap the stem with hemp or other twine (hot glue into place)
    6. Hot glue on your shells and other embelishments

    That is so tacky looking, and it doesn’t help that the stem looks like a penis!

        You’re being much nicer than I would have. What a jerk this person is…..If you have nothing nice to say, then say nothing at all. I, myself, think this pumpkin is beautiful!

        Some folks need their glasses adjusted as well as their attitude. The stem looks like a stem for pity sake.

    Love this. I have 2 pumpkins and a bunch of shells that I had for 17 yes and didn’t know what to do with. Just need to get the paint and a few other things
