DIY Glitter Pumpkins

Years ago I bought a silver glass glitter pumpkin from Target.  I haven’t been able to find another since so I thought I would try my hand at making my own this year.  So, I’m sharing with you with my DIY glitter pumpkin tutorial.

The tutorial itself is super simple.  I will say if I had it to do over again I would likely spray paint the base of my pumpkin silver as well.  The orange was pretty difficult to cover.

Supplies:

To make things easier first spray the base of your pumpkin with silver spray paint (I skipped this step but wish I had done it).  Once dry, then paint a small section of your pumpkin with Modge Podge using the foam brush.

Then sprinkle glitter over the Modge Podge.

Repeat on small sections of the pumpkin until the entire pumpkin is covered in glitter.
