DIY Half Pumpkin Crafts - Halloween Sparkly Spider Craft Tutorial

My local Michaels store put their half pumpkins on sale for 60% off, and then we were able to apply a 20% off the entire purchase, so we bought quite a few of these fun to create some fun half pumpkin halloween craft projects and use up the Folk Art Home Decor chalk Paint.  This tiny 2 ounce bottle really seems to cover a lot of surfaces.    We have been having fun coming up with ways to use this paint and loved adding it to our family Halloween craft stash.  This particular sparkly spider themed half pumpkin door decoration is one of the projects we came up with and it is pretty easy to make.

Materials Needed:
  • Harvest Market – Half Pumpkin (Michaels Stores)
  • Fabric Leaves (dollar store)
  • Plastic spider rings (dollar store)
  • Large Plastic glitter covered spiders (dollar store)
  • Jewel Bling Strips (eyelet outlet)
  • Small rhinestones

Supplies Needed:

  • Folk Art Home Décor Chalk Paint in Rich Black
  • 1 “ Plaid Mod Podge Tools Foam Brush
  • A6000 glue
  • Glue Gun
  • Scissors
Step 1:
Remove tags from the pumpkin and clean it off. Then, using the foam brush, paint the pumpkin with some broad strokes of the Rich Black Folk Art Home Décor Chalk Paint.  Make sure to leave a lot of white space on the pumpkin.

Step 2:
Use the scissors to snip off the plastic ring part off of the spiders.

Step 3:
Use the A6000 glue to adhere a rhinestone onto the back of each spider.

Step 4:
Using the A6000 or the Glue Gun, adhere the black leaves onto the top of the pumpkin.

Step 5:
Carefully lay out the jewel strips, making sure to vary the lengths. Remove the plastic backing and adhere to half pumpkin. 

Step 6:
Using the hot glue gun, carefully glue the spiders onto the ends of the jewel strips.  Be careful not to get burned or to melt the spiders.

Step 7:
Adhere the Large Spider to the top of the pumpkin. Be careful to place it where it won’t interfere with the how the pumpkin hangs.

Step 8:
Hang the Halloween Spider Themed Pumpkin on your door and enjoy.

Note:  I paid for everything used in this project except the Folk Art Home Décor Chalk Paint in Rich Black.  Thank you to the folks at Plaid who sent me this cool 2 oz bottle of chalk paint, so far we are loving it.
