Glitter pumpkin

(This post was first published in October 2011)


How about a fun and easy project to start this Halloween season? 


A Glitter Pumpkin!


I used a dollar store pumpkin, mod podge and orange glitter.


It's pretty self explanatory.  I just painted the mod podge onto a section of the pumpkin then poured glitter over the top.  When one section was dry I moved onto another one.  There were some holes where the glitter didn't stick or I didn't put it on thick enough, so I went back over the holes with more mod podge and glitter.


After it was dry I sprayed it with hairspray, thinking it would hold the glitter on.  I'm not sure if it was necessary, but the glitter seams to be staying on pretty well.


Then I put it on top of a tall candle stick and there it is -an inexpensive and easy Halloween/Fall decoration!  You can view all of the pumpkins in the picture here.
