Dazzling, Gleaming, and Shining DIY Halloween Pumpkin Decorations

The Shining ~ Studded with self-adhesive crafts store jewels, these blinged-out pumpkins prove that diamonds are a ghoul's best friend.

The Gleaming ~ Paint jack-o'-lanterns shades of heavy metal before carving features. "Rock" them out with plastic gems, sequin strips (around the witch's eyes), and glitter glue (outlining the ghost).

The Dazzling ~ Creating a trio of crystal-accented cats is so simple, it's frightening. Pick large pumpkins for the bodies, smaller ones for the heads (snap off stems; turn upside down), and squash for the tails. Spray on a couple of coats of glossy black paint, and carve almond-shaped eyes. Cut triangle ears and collars from felt; affix with straight pins. With a hot-glue gun, attach plastic gems and rhinestone strips for purrfectly gloomy glamour.
