DIY Glow In The Dark Decorative Pumpkins

Ahhhh it's Fall, my fave!  I'm obsessed with Halloween and admittedly began putting my insane amounts of decorations up this weekend.  But I realized I had nothing for outside my front door and wanted to do some snazzy faux pumpkins.  What perfect timing, when iLoveToCreate sent me some fabulous glow in the dark puffy paint!  I knew it was time to get my DIY on.  {More after the break}

Faux pumpkins, the black one was $8 in the Halloween department and the three shiny ones were $2.50 a piece in the dollar area, all from Target.

And the awesome set of puffy paints!

My camera really wasn't cooperating, but here's how it kinda looks glowing.  Except you can really see it when it glows, and my camera really didn't feel like capturing it.

And here they are!  I took matching colors of puffy paint and drew lines in the crevices of the colored pumpkins, and used the 'Natural Glow' colored paint to draw "BOO!" on the black one.  I think they came out so cute!  The project couldn't be simpler, and I must admit, it was rather nostalgic to use puffy paints again!

iLoveToCreate has a TON of really amazing DIY Halloween projects up on their website, I'd highly recommend you check it out!  Or, check them out and say hi on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.

Disclosure: I was provided the mentioned product to review as part of a campaign with iLoveToCreate and The Blueprint Social.  All opinions are always my own.
