Glittered Pumpkins

Tools and Materials
Small pumpkins
Craft glue
Paper plate or newspaper
Brown acrylic paint
Glittered Pumpkins How-To
1. With a paintbrush, spread glue over the surface of a small pumpkin. Place pumpkin on a paper plate or newspaper to catch excess glitter.
2. Sprinkle powder glitter over glue, covering completely. Let dry for an hour, then shake off excess powder.
3. Coat stem with brown acrylic paint, let dry. Once dry, the stem can also be done in brown glitter.
Tips- It's easiest to do half the pumpkin and sprinkle with glitter, let dry, and continue 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.
