Black and gold Halloween decor is super popular this year! I think it brings a certain elegance to decorating for a rather gory holiday. Let me show you how to create a gold and black beaded pumpkins to create the perfect haunted entryway. It is sure to frighten anyone who knocks on your front door!
I’ve teamed up with my friends from Oriental Trading Company in this post. They carry a vast selection of Halloween Party decor, Halloween crafts, candy, and even those large animatronic creatures. I chose a few of my favorites to create my haunted entryway.
To complete my scene, I chose a set of ceramic pumpkins to paint to go with my black and gold setup. They were super easy to paint and finish with mini beads and gilding. I think they add the perfect amount of glam to greet my guests. Here’s how I made them.
Gold and Black Beaded Pumpkins
- Ceramic Pumpkin Set
- Acrylic Paint: Black
- Gold Liquid Gilding
- American Crafts: Pop Wow Spark Glitter Set
- Fine Gold Glitter
- Elmer’s Glue-All Adhesive
- Paint Brushes
Paint the pumpkins with black acrylic paint. Do not paint the stems black. Let them dry. In a ventilated space and wearing gloves, paint the stems carefully with the liquid gold gilding. Follow the gilding directions carefully. Gilding can be toxic so make sure to open a window. Let it dry.
Paint Elmer’s Glue-All around the stem and down the edges of the pumpkin.
Sprinkle the micro beads over the glue. Repeat until all of the glue is covered with beads.
NOTE: An easy way to save the beads and not use them up all at once is to place the pumpkin in a deep dish and pour the beads over the pumpkin. Catching the beads in the dish to reuse. Repeat steps using the beads caught in the dish.
Touch up any areas with glue and add more beads. Add more glue around the edge of the stem and sprinkle with fine gold glitter. Let it all dry and display!
Here is how I put together my haunted entryway!
I just love the gold skeletons that are popular this year! All I did was add some creepy fabric over a chair. Sat the skeleton in the chair, gave him a cute top hat and boa to hang out in. The cute witch on the wall is actually a yard stake! So you can either hang her inside like I did or stick her in your garden!
The fringe on the table is the Halloween Lamp Shade Topper. You can tie it around a lampshade for a more ominous spooky look. I thought it was perfect on my front entry to add an old Victorian glam feel to my table.
Did you notice the crazy gorilla rug on the floor! He is animatronic and when you step on him he screams and plays crazy king kong sounding music. His eyes light up red too! So fun!
Lovin the crystal ball! It is super cool with water in it like an empty snowglobe! So mystical for Halloween!
