Easy DIY Pumpkin Goblets

Work Time: 30 Min
Total Time: 1 Hour
Approximate Cost: $10-$20

While this project may be best left for the adults, some older kids may enjoy it too. Again I started with a quick trip to the thrift store. I knew I wanted all sorts of shaped goblets and glasses since it seams no two pumpkins are the same. I really liked the short round ones (I think these are traditionally thought of as brandy glasses) and the tall thin ones (Champagne?)

1. Gather Supplies:
  • Glasses and goblets of various sizes and shapes
  • Spray paint in orange and green (You can go hunter green or a lighter green)
  • Painting surface (Used the same milk crate from my Candy Corn Vases)
  • "Trimmings" (I used Moss, fall accents, and raffia)
  • Optional: Hot glue gun, black paint, paint brush

 2. Spray the bases of the goblets green making sure to thoroughly cover the bottom which will now become the top of your finished project. Let dry.

3. Spray the top of the goblet orange. I found it easiest to hold the green area to ensure a thorough coverage with out making a runny mess. Let dry.
4. Using a hot glue gun attach trimmings.
5. If you prefer not to use a hot glue gun, or the kids want to decorate, use raffia to tie bows at the stems.
Be creative and add anything you'd like. If you'd like to make them more Halloween: use black paint and paint a jack-o-lantern on! I made these in about an hour only because I had to wait 30 min total for the paint to dry. My cost was only $6 since I had the spray paint and some of the trim on hand. I spent $4 on the goblets at the thrift store and $2 on the raffia.

Like this idea? Pin It!!

I gave a set of these to my MIL and she creatively added them to her fall display with little tea lights on top. I love this idea and it makes for a nice center piece at a dinner table.
