DIY Black & White Glam Pumpkin – faux pumpkin decorated with rhinestones and a witch hat.
It may not be September yet, but I’m excited to get started on our Halloween decor! This black and white glam pumpkin was made using Americana multi-surface paint and a faux white pumpkin from Michaels.
Every year I find that my Halloween decor style slightly changes. Some years I like black and orange, others black, purple, and green. Last year I began leaning towards classic black and white. I love the simplicity of the color combo and that it’s eerily creepy in a way. I go back and forth between a rustic, old black and white and a glam black and white with lots of bling!
Black and White Glam Pumpkin
- Americana Multi-Surface Paint (in Black Tie)
- White faux pumpkin from Michaels
- Boo! rhinestones letters (Recollections brand)
- paper mache hat
- hot glue
- feather with glitter picks
I started by painting two coats of Americana Black Tie multi-surface paint on my paper mache hat. I really like the satin finish, it has the perfect amount of sheen.
While the paint dried I applied the rhinestone Boo! letters on the pumpkin.
Then once the hat dried I glued tulle trim around the base, tied a ribbon bow, and used a few glitzy picks to embellish it (the picks are also from Michaels). Love the little feathers and pop of purple in the mix!

This is such a cute idea! We are having a pumpkin painting party and this would be perfect for everyone to create their own! I would love if you would share this over at our blog hop
Totally in love with this idea – I have been collecting witch hats for a table scape and this would be a perfect addition!!
We had a family craft day this last weekend and this is the project we did. We had so much fun and they turned out very cute. Thanks for the tutorial. :-)
I’m having trouble finding the BOO rhinestone letters. Where did everyone find theirs??
Shauna » Mine are from Michaels, they’re located on a display behind the Halloween Martha Stewart crafts products. I hope that helps! :)
Found them!!!! Thank you!!!
SUPER Cute Design! I Like it so much I’ve included it in my 25 Creative Pumpkin decorating Ideas Round Up!
Thank you so much for sharing this.
Hi, is the word “BOO” actually in a package by itself, or are they individual letters? I couldn’t find it at michaels. Also, I completely forgot to look at the hat. What size is it?
Erin » Hi Erin, the word Boo is in a package. I found mine behind the Halloween Martha Stewart crafts display. I believe it’s the Recollections brand, you’ll see rhinestone rolls and other rhinestone Halloween shapes next to it. I hope you find it, thanks for stopping by!
we did finally find them. But now, I can’t get the “Boo” to stay on. Did you have any problems?
Love your glam pumpkin! I hope to make one – I plan to leave the hat unattached on the pumpkin and we can stuff the pumpkin with candy! So cute.
