Project supplies for framed jeweled pumpkin art

SUPPLIES:

A frame – with the glass removed
Gold fabric – enough to cover the cardboard insert of the frame
Hot glue
Fabric scissors
Paper scissors
Pumpkin Stencil
Chalk fabric marking pencil
Gem Tac Glue
Rhinestone chain
Orange buttons – all sizes and hues of orange
1-2 Brown buttons
Costume jewelry

MAKE IT:

First, remove the glass and matte from the frame keeping the cardboard insert.
Cut the fabric about 2 inches larger than the cardboard insert so the edges of the fabric can wrap around the board. Optional step if you have a Serger machine is to finish the edges of the fabric.

Cut fabric to fit cardboard frame insert

Next, using your hot glue gun, wrap the fabric over the cardboard and glue. Flip the fabric wrapped cardboard over and start designing.

Glue fabric to cover the cardboard

Print out the pumpkin stencil and cut it out.
Lay the stencil on the fabric piece and trace around the edge with the chalk marking pencil. Making sure to add the inside line details of the pumpkin.

using a chalk marker trace around stencil

We are using a chalk marking pencil because it can easily be wiped off if you make a mistake or want to change your design. Adding the curved detailed lines of a pumpkin gives it depth.

Add the detail curve lines of a pumpkin

Using the Gem Tac glue, add a little to the traced lines and lay the rhinestone chain down. Work on smaller sections at a time until the entire outline is complete, including the stem.

Add gem glue ot the chalk markings

Carefully lay the rhinestone chain on the glue pushing it into place along the line.

Add the rhinestone chain to create the outline

Continue adding glue and the rhinestone chain to create the outline of the pumpkin.

Place the chain along the glue lines

Add a second layer to the outline if your rhinestone chain is thin.
Finish by adding the detail lines to the inside of the pumpkin using one strand of the rhinestone chain.

add a second outline if your chain is thin

Leave a little extra section of rhinestone at the top of the pumpkin to use for the leaf detail later.

Clip the chain leaving a little at the stem

Clip the chain using wire cutters leaving a little of the chain at the stem.

Adding more and more buttons and gems

Now, fill the pumpkin sections with buttons and costume jewelry.

Adding more and more buttons and gems

Start by placing the costume jewelry pieces on first, these will be used as accents inside the pumpkin.
Fill up the rest of the pumpkin shell with orange buttons placing buttons inside the pumpkin to fill-up every section, using a variety of sizes and orange hues.

adding more and more buttons and gems to the outline until it's full

Continue adding more and more buttons and gems to the outline until it’s full.

Glue the embellishments in place

Once the pumpkin is filled with buttons, glue each one of them on using Gem Tac. You can start placing and gluing section by section or do the entire pumpkin at one time. I like to fill the entire pumpkin outline so I can see the overall project.

GLue all the buttons and gems down filling in the gaps

Glue all the buttons and gems down filling in the gaps.
TOP TIP: When you’re gluing the buttons on, it’s good to have a damp washcloth nearby to wipe up any excess glue and to keep your fingers clean.

Cover the entire inside of the stencil using all sizes and hues of the orange buttons and gems you have.  Let the glue dry for 24 hours.

Cover the entire inside of the stencil

FINISHING TOUCHES:

If you see areas that could be filled with more color, use orange gems or tiny orange buttons to fill the gaps. This process allows more of the project to be covered and gives it more dimension.

Add all sizes of gems and buttons until it's completed covered

Add smaller rhinestone gems to any gaps and tiny buttons to create layers to your design.

the buttons and gems create a beautiful texture

Layering the buttons and gems create a beautiful texture and richness to the piece.  the glue dries clear and the colors pop

Let the project completely dry for 24 hours. The glue will dry clear and the will colors pop just like autumn.

Add the frame back on, securing the back.

put it in the frame once it's dry

And there you have it; a beautiful pumpkin spice theme Fall home décor art piece.
