Fill glass container with layers of beans, starting with red lentils (because they are smallest and will creep through other beans), then white and black beans. If you choose to add a pillar candle, place the candle in the middle of the top layer before filling entire layer. Arrange votive candles and mini pumpkins with glass container on a glass or other tray for an instant Halloween centerpiece!
Awesome Eye Candy:
Layer mini marshmallows, black licorice, pumpkin Peeps, more mini marshmallows, large black gumballs, candy corns, ghost Peeps, large orange gumballs and mini yellow gumballs. Stick a variety of lollipops into the top and Voila!!! Mini marshmallows were used as filler inside the jar. All candy items were found at local grocery and craft stores. So cute!
With paintbrush, spread layer of white glue over the surface of a small pumpkin. Place pumpkin on a paper plate or newspaper to catch excess glitter. Sprinkle powder glitter over glue, covering completely. Let dry for an hour, then shake off excess powder. Coat stem with brown acrylic paint, let dry. Once dry, the stem can also be covered in brown glitter if desired. The pumpkins will keep for months!! So festive and simple! My little one will be helping with this project!
For a different look, try putting the flowers inside of the pumpkin rather than around it. Above we see fall blossoms in shades of yellow, red and orange, plus curly willow for a touch of height. A perfect piece for the center of any Dinner table!!
First remove the stem from the pumpkin and start painting with craft paint. Craft paint is thicker than the spray glitter paint. Add another thin layer of color and shine with spray glitter paint. White pumpkins are even easier; they only need a sprinkle of glitter. Ready to embellish?!? Cut apart decorative “holiday picks” and glue them to the top of the pumpkins. This collection of pretty pumpkins works as well on a dining table as a centerpiece as it does on a coffee table. Love this idea!!!
Adding ribbon is a totally easy way to decorate with pumpkins. Throw decorated pumpkins inside a vintage bowl or basket to make your Fall table-top complete!!
