Gourdgeous Dandy Gourds

Hey Dandy Lovers,

At The Dandy Lion Boutique, we celebrate holidays to the MAX! Halloween is creeping up on us, so we decided to give a gourd-DIY pumpkin makeover to our Dandy pumpkins. I have seen on Pinterest a bunch of different styles that are beautiful (my favs are the chevron pumpkins) but at The Dandy Lion, our style is a little bit more eccentric and crazy!



We did some different varieties of gourd-geous gourds at The Dandy Lion...one with paint pens for the chevron pattern (we free handed it for a crazier look, you can also use painters tape for a cleaner style)....



For this Dandy gourd we used all kinds of ribbons (mostly scraps work well for the pumpkin since you don't need a whole lot) and we hot-glued them from one end to the other. This gourd-geous gourd turned out to be super cool and quirky!



Then we have our gourd-geous metallic pumpkin lined with pearls...we spray painted the metallic color then hot glued each pearl in. I like this pumpkin because it is very Marie Antoinette! 


Had to get a shot of our new Dandy Lion windows and the bejeweled bench of course! A Dandy staple in our outside decor. 


Here I am posing with our gourd-geous pumpkins!



And there we have The Dandy Lion's gourd-geous gourds! Have a great day and remember to stay Dandy!
