DIY Pumpkin Carving Awards

I've been planning my Halloween Pumpkin Carving/Birthday Party for a couple months now.
I have looked all over for cute awards to give as gifts for the Pumpkin Carving winners.
After searching for over a month I finally decided to make my own.

Here's what you need:
fake pumpkins, black paint, black spray paint, wooden circle shapes (as base),
paint brush, and self adhesive black rhinestones, nail, hammer, screws, screwdriver (not pictured).

Step 1:
Use black paint to write the words on the pumpkins. 
I used Creative, Scariest, and Custest

Step 2:
Take circle base shapes and spray paint both sides black.  Let dry completely!

Step 3:
Once dry then take a nail and hammer a nail hole through the bottom.

Step 4:
Center the pumpkin on the top of the circle shape.
Then take your screwdriver and screw the circle base into the pumpkin to keep it in place.

Repeat for all your awards.

So cute!!
Super cheap too!  Only cost me $8.00
I bought the pumpkins for $1.00 each at Walmart and the wooden circle shapes at a craft store for a $1.00 each.  Everything else I had laying around the house.

For the creative one I was CREATIVE ;) and used rhinestones instead of the paint.

This was a lot of fun! 
Hope this helps you come up with ideas for your own Awards! 
 I'd love to see what you make!
Please post if you try this project!!  ;)
