of sweet milkshake pumpkin to store your favorite Christmas treats. all done for less than ten dollars and you guessed it. I found all of these pieces at Dollar Tree to make my first piece. I'm using two six inch round glass bowls and since it's fall now and the costumes are gone, I found these lovely little teardrops in the costume section at Dollar Tree for this piece I'm using six of the purple ones to put it all together, you'll need strong cutting scissors, these are the claw floral cutters, I'm also using Gorilla Clear Grip glue and the hot glue gun, okay first.

I'm going to start by joining my two arches. I already put some Gorilla Clear Grip glue around the edge and left a space to put a dot of hot glue on each end and hot glue dries instantly so I put it there just to keep the bulbs in place while it dries wet glue and make sure the bowls are lined up and glued face to face to shape this sphere. Now I'm going to set that aside to dry while I grab my tiara and figure it out. how am I going to use this to decorate my glass pumpkin so I decided to cut this into sections to make it easier for me to wrap it around my glass.

I am cutting the two into sections where first I have a curled diamond piece and then I am cutting the center section where the diamonds are attached to the crown to have two pieces that have two small diamonds attached. I want to keep those pieces, so I'm going to set them aside and I want these top diamonds to be wrapped. around the glass so I'm going to cut them out and then I'm going to cut the other side piece away from the center and this is a look at how I cut my pieces into sections so I'm going To start with this center piece and turn it around I'm going to put a drop of Gorilla Clear Grip glue right in the center and in some places where I think the piece will touch the glass, then I'll put a couple drops of hot glue in other places where I think this piece will touch the glass and again wet glue the gorilla clear grip glue will help the piece stay longer while the hot glue will keep it in place until the wet glue dries, but you want to make sure you don't put wet glue or hot glue on top of the wet glue, so you'll need it in a different section, but I'm going to place this right next to the border to cover that border line that you could also use. e6000 as the glue for the next thing, I'm going to glue those little diamonds and again I'm going to use a drop of the clear Gorilla Grip glue and a drop of hot glue and I'm going to do that for each piece that Gluing them in order like they were before, but they will lay flat on the sphere and will wrap around it as it rises to the top.

Now this piece I decided I want to tilt it inwards so it's flatter. piece to give it more dimension, kind of a winged look, so I think I'm going to separate this from the base so I can glue the diamond part separately and angle it more towards the glass, so I'm going to glue that silver base. first at a right angle so it covers that seam and then I'm going to glue that diamond end piece at an angle towards the glass and I'm going to tuck it in a little bit behind the center wing piece like that.

I'll have different levels for this design and do the same on the other side. Great, I really like how this looks. It has a lot of dimensions, the diamonds curve around the glass and a lot of faceted interest in the dimensions, so I'm going to do the same thing on the other side. I think I'm going to do one on the bottom and one here with this purple level, so let's see how it looks now before I do the same design on the other side. I'm going to use the two cut pieces that I cut from the top of this wreath to cover the cut marks that I have between the base piece and I'm just going to use a dot of hot glue for that and place those little pieces right in front of the cut to add a little bit of glitter and fix it up a little bit, so I used another tiara and did the same on the opposite side and now it's time to work on the empty spaces on the side, but I don't have as much space as on the other two sides.
I only have this space left, so I'll have to do something a little different, so for the sides I'll only be able to glue the center. pieces between the two larger pieces, so I'm going to draw up a new design for this side piece and I think I'm going to do something like this. I'm going to have the center pieces on top and I'm going to cut out the side pieces so I only have two of those oval shaped diamond pieces so I'm going to place them this way. I'm attaching the top center pieces like I did before, but I'm going to take the side piece that I cut out and instead of using it as a double wing like I did last time, I'm going to glue it to the corner of the other side piece to cover the cut area and I'll just leave it as a loop under the base of the top center piece and do the same on the other end that connects the base pieces.
Next, I'm gluing those two oval shaped pieces that I cut down here, at the bottom and in between each other. two pieces and finally to cover those two cut edges in the center I'm going to use those two little diamond pieces that I had left over right here at the end also to help hide those perfect cut marks now I'm just going to repeat that on the opposite side okay , so I have the top and bottom of the two sides. Now I'm going to use two more levels to make the bottom of the front and the back and I'm doing this the same way I did the top. flat but I'm only using the center pieces so this is what it looks like, the top part is more elaborate and the bottom part is less detailed.
I also cut the bottom base off of this piece because I just want to have a base going down the middle and save those extra pieces for our next step, which is the stem of the pumpkin, but before we get to the stem, I'm going to turn to the opposite side and make the bottom of this side, okay, now all my decoration is ready. and now it's time to create a stem on top, so to create the stem I'm going to take what's left of the bottom of the larger center piece and I'm going to cut the silver base off of this. do that on both ends of that piece so I have two pieces that look like this and I'm going to do the same thing with the leftover piece on the other side but I'm only going to need one of those pieces I also cut the curly end off of this piece so I'm going to take the two pieces with the curly end and I'm going to press them together almost at right angles so that they form a kind of V shape, so I'm going to glue it like this so that the next one looks like two geese next to it intertwined in the center , they touch but it's a little bit off at almost a right angle, so I just use hot glue right in the center there and it looks like a kind of V shaped triangle and it sits a little bit tilted like this, now it forms a stem of three sides and with the other piece where I cut the curly part, I'm going to tilt it to one side so I can Um, glue this piece to the other two pieces and it fills in the other side like this, so after I glue the three sides together, that's right what the stem looks like, so to attach this to the top of my pumpkin, I'm going to use a little Gorilla Clear Grip glue on two of the points and hot glue on one of the points and I'm going to attach it to the top top center.
I'm going to join it so that it's at a little bit of an angle. from the front piece I want the stem of the pumpkin to look like it curves and curves and slopes down at the top like a real pumpkin stem and I think this does a beautiful job of doing that and look this is just A really beautiful display piece has a pretty and elegant shiny fall pumpkin, but looking at this also reminded me a lot of this beautiful glass pumpkin carriage from Cinderella, so if you want to go a step further and make it into a carriage, this is what you can do.
To add the cart I am using floral wire and diamond ribbon. You can also find them at Dollar Tree. It comes in different colors but I found this really cool purple floral wire and I thought it was perfect because it matches the stones in my piece so I'm going to use this to make my carriage wheels so I just cut two 24 inch pieces long and I think they will be enough for two wheels on each side so that my wheels match the main piece I am going to use. to add diamond wrapping, so I just cut a very long strand of the diamond wrapping ribbon and I'm going to hot glue it to one side of the wire.
You want to make sure to hold the cable down so that it is stuck on only one side. of the wire tends to twist if you hold it up and you really need it to be on the same side all the way down now after putting the diamond wrap on both wires you will start from one end and start twisting inwards around itself and do it without squeeze and gently, um, being careful that the diamond wrap doesn't come off as you twist and turn, you may have to touch it up, but you'll twist it on both ends a couple of twists and after curving both ends, I'll bend the center part down and the goal is to make something that looks like wheels, something similar to this.
Now I extended it a little and adjusted the cables to fit this short side. and I want the curve to fit right under these two oval pieces on the side and I want my wheels to be flush with the ground, so I'm adjusting the cable to fit perfectly around these pieces on the bottom of the side So I'm going I'm going to put some Gorilla Clear Grip glue on the glass and on the side of the diamond piece where the pieces will intersect and then I'm going to put some hot glue right on top of that and then I can put my carriage wheels on.
I'm going to put a little hot glue around it to make sure it stays in place, then I'll do the other side and when the hot glue is dry you can make some final adjustments to make sure the wheels are nice and round in the right position . the right angle is fine, so what I had left over was these pieces, the end of the tiara with this little curly diamond shape and I think I'm going to use that on my wheels, I'm going to cut that curly piece and it actually just fits right in the center and I think it will add an extra shine to my wheel.
I could just put it in there and make the wheel look a little neater, so I'm going to cut this to almost a circle. and then I'm going to hot glue this on both sides of each wheel. In fact, I have just the right amount. I have about eight, so I'm going to put one on the inside and outside of each of them and with just that. Small addition, I have a beautiful Cinderella carriage that would make a perfect display for fall and of course it will look amazing in your favorite little or big princess's room so it would also make a great gift and while I'm added. turning tears into treasures i want to quickly show you another option that you can make using this method this pumpkin shaped

candy

dish

to make my

candy

dish i am using four pink tiaras a bag of small clear glass gems two round decorative glass bowls of eight inches and two leaf shaped glass tea light holders, okay this tiara has a different design, the rose one I chose, and you can play with different designs by cutting it any way you want and wrapping it around the plate, but I'm just going To do something simple right now just to show you how to put this together, I think I'm just going to separate the front part where I have the pink diamonds from the silver diamonds.
I also separated the tiara from the silver ring that goes around the hair because I'm not going to hide the seam, I want these two ties to separate to have a lid on the bottom of the candy dish, the same way I did with the other piece that I'm going to use gorilla clear grip glue and hot glue on different sections on the back of this piece and I'm going to glue this starting from the edge all the way around using four levels and four evenly spaced places on the plate and this is for the top lid is fine so to turn this into a lid I need a handle so I'm using this glass tea light holder which is shaped like a leaf I think it will be a really pretty handle for the pumpkin so I'm just going to Add a little Gorilla Clear Grip glue to the bottom of this tea light holder and I will glue it to the center of the top of the bowl.
I'm also going to add a tea light holder to the other bowl to the bottom half because I want it to sit on a pedestal so it will be a support at the bottom of the bowl and after those two pieces are dry you can see that I have something that It looks like this: It will be a plate of sweets. that you can cover to handle something like this now the only problem I have is that the top is not a great lid because it is the same size and shape as the bottom and could slide easily to keep the lid in place.
I'm going to use these little gems and I'm going to place them around the edge of thebottom and that will create an extended edge that will give you an extra edge so the lid can stay in place, so I'm going to put a dot of clear Gorilla Grip glue and a dot of hot glue on each piece and I'm going to put that on the bottom half of the gems and I'm going to glue each gem halfway up the glass and halfway up the top. the glass on the outside of the glass and I'm gluing each piece next to each other all the way around.
I used about 33 of these little gems. Now I can put the top on without it slipping. Well, now I am. I'm going to decorate the bottom half of this. I have these pieces left and I'm going to put it here somewhere. I have two pieces that I cut for each tare and I'm just going to arrange it this way right underneath, it kind of had an angle and it looks like a continuation of the design. I'll just line up each of these with each of the other pieces on top, but whichever way I place the top, it will still look good and with that I think we're done, now I can display them on my buffet. table with the rest of my homemade pumpkin pieces and while the neighborhood little kids are served their Halloween treats at the door, I can sneak in here among the pretty display and have my own little stash of goodies Hey guys, check out my pumpkin store. etsy where you can get some of the projects made in this program and for just a few dollars you can get instant digital downloads of full color step by step instructions with templates for some of your favorite projects and visit my Amazon page where you can choose.
