Glitter Pumpkins

So I found this cute idea for decorating your pumpkins. I am not a really a huge fall fan. Why? Because I dislike “orange” yes it’s my least favorite color. If you’re a close friend of mine you would know this. But I saw this idea and felt that I just had to share it!! It’s at Martha Stewart web site.

Your materials are

♥Small pumpkins
♥Medium-sized paintbrush
♥Similar glitter in Garnet, Tourmaline, and Bronze, $4.99, by Martha Stewart Crafts
♥White glue, by Martha Stewart Crafts
♥Paper plate or newspaper
♥Brown acrylic paint
 

How-To:

¤With paintbrush, spread layer of white glue over the surface of a small pumpkin. Place pumpkin on a paper plate or newspaper to catch excess glitter.

¤Sprinkle powder glitter over glue, covering completely. Let dry for an hour, then shake off excess powder.

¤Coat stem with brown acrylic paint, let dry. Once dry, the stem can also be covered in brown glitter if desired. The pumpkins will keep for months.

Tips

¤It’s easiest to do half the pumpkin and sprinkle with glitter, let dry, and continue with the other half.

¤There’s no need to completely cover the bottom, since it’s not seen. Also, it’s fine if your pumpkin has marks or mild blemishes, since you will be covering it with glitter.
