Do It Yourself // Glittered Pumpkins

I had so much fun making these pumpkins! I was trying to think of a fun craft I could do while David was at work the other night and this instantly came to mind. I'm probably the worst pumpkin carver ever (although I plan on gutting one soon for seeds)- this ended up being an easy solution! 

Here's what I used: small white decorative pumpkins, mod podge, loose gold glitter, martha stewart foam pouncers, brush & spray sealer. 

For the dots: dip the pouncer in some mod podge, blot excess on newspaper and stamp 2-3 circles at a time on pumpkin- glittering each one and working your way around. For the stripes: brush on mod podge on every other node, glitter as you work around. Clean brush and brush off any extra loose glitter around pumpkin, seal and you're done!

  8. These are adorable--somehow they remind me of Cinderella like they could turn into coaches at any time. And you're right--this is definitely easier than trying to carve these bad boys into faces.

    1. I actually just used a sealer I had leftover from a gold leaf project! I believe it was a Speedball can with Mona Lisa on the front from Michael's!
