I had such an amazing time at this weekend's Lovely Happenings event! It was truly the ultimate girls' day filled with fun people, fabulous decor and a fun mimosa and bloody mary bar! Seriously, the perfect Saturday!
I was apart of the DIY category for the event where I hosted a donut decorating pumpkin bar! Bringing two of my favorite things together :) I took a fun and bright twist on pumpkin painting by decorating pumpkins with colorful paints, glitter and other fun "sprinkle" options.
A huge thanks to everyone who stopped by my table and had fun painting donut pumpkins with me too! Everyone had their own spins on the DIY project which made it that much more fun.
If you didn't have a chance to stop by my table or for those of you that couldn't make it here's a rundown of how you can create your own donut pumpkins! Because let's be real, everything is better with sprinkles and glitter right!?
- Mini pumpkins
- Acrylic paint
- Paint brushes
- Mini pom poms
- Gem stickers
- Glitter glue
- Tacky glue
Get to Painting!
No matter how creative you think you are this DIY is for everyone! There's only 3 steps!
- Clean off the pumpkins -- wet wipes work awesome for this
- Paint the frosting -- I left a circle around the stem so the pumpkin would look more like a donut. Then paint as much "frosting" as you would like around the top of the pumpkin. Depending on the color you pick you may want to do a few coats.
- Pick your "sprinkles" -- You can paint on sprinkles with other paint colors, use glitter glue or glue on mini pom poms or gem stickers!
This DIY project is totally perfect for any upcoming girls night or Halloween get-togethers you have coming up too!
And that's a wrap! A HUGE thank you goes out to the co-founders of Lovely Happenings Rachael and Jaclyn -- who are easily two of my new favorite people -- for inviting me to be apart of the Fall event! <3 :)
