Call me a “Granny,” but I am a sucker for doilies, lace, or anything crochet and look for every opportunity I can to use them.
Awhile back, I purchased a whole bunch of doilies in a number of colors from the dollar bin at Michaels, (the one in Port Chester has a great dollar bin!), but you can also find them online.
I use them for a number of things, and figured Halloween should be no exception.
These pumpkins are so adorable and fun to make, but my favorite thing about them is that they make for some classy looking Halloween decor. Halloween decor can often come off as cartoony or kitschy and/or geared toward children —but the doily pumpkin offers a more sophisticated way to celebrate the holiday.
If you can’t find crochet doilies, you can substitute it with lace, paper doilies, or even lace stockings. I didn’t really have an organized method for this project, I just used stuff I found in my craft bin. The plastic pumpkins were purchased from Christmas Tree Shop and the black rhinestones are from Michaels.
What you’ll need:
Rhinestones or studs
Black Puff Paint
