Create an Eddie Borgo-Inspired Jeweled Pumpkin

Now that the spooktacular night of Halloween is coming to an end, you’re probably wondering what to do with your leftover pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns. Jeweler Eddie Borgo needed a housewarming gift for designer-friend Victor Glemaud and decided to create a festive centerpiece–a bejeweled pumpkin.

Thanks to Vogue, you can find out exactly what you need to create your very own Eddie Borgo-inspired bejeweled pumpkin. This is a great way to keep the Halloween spirit in your house until you’re ready to start decorating for the holidays and is also a really fun crafts project.

You will need:

  • Pumpkin
  • Carving knife and spoon
  • Jewelry studs (Borgo recommends StudsandSpikes.com or M&J Trimming)
  • Krylon matte black spray paint

1. Pick your pumpkin at the local market. Borgo likes his medium-size, symmetrical, and round.

2. Empty out the seeds and pulp and begin to carve the face.

3. Try to accentuate the cutout shapes by studding around them, pushing the spikes into the shell of the pumpkin. Borgo likes to start with the eyes, followed by the noise; the mouth comes last.

4. After the face is completely studded, use Krylon matte black spray paint over the whole pumpkin to make it deep, deep black.

And that’s all there is to it!
