I want to share this tutorial. I shared this today over at Oopsey Daisy but just in case you missed it there… here it is again.
Here’s how to transform these ugly plastic pumpkins into gorgeous Glitter Pumpkins.
It’s SUPER easy!
I highly recommend to put something down in your work area to catch the glitter. They sell pans that are for this but I actually like to just use a cookie sheet with wax paper on it. That way when you are done with one color, you can just pick up the paper and put the extra right back into the glitter bottle.
Also, just be ready to be COVERED in glitter. You will see glitter all over you, your pets, floor, kids, husband- it just appears! lol
Cover the pumpkin with glue.
Work in small sections at a time especially if working with larger pumpkins, otherwise your glue will start to dry before you get the glitter on.
Also, you do not need to put glue on the bottom. Just put glue down far enough where you won’t see anymore of the originally pumpkin.
Once the pumpkins is dry, you can now add glitter to the stem.
I chose a dark brown glitter for the stem.
Knock of the extra, set aside to dry and your done!
You can even add a couple leaves to the top if you like for a little extra embellishment.
You can glitter larger pumpkins and set them together for a fun grouping.
I’ve shared this before but this is a my set of pumpkins I created two years ago. They are perfect to use outside as well and shimmer so pretty in the sun. They last in the rain just fine, in fact, even after two years they only needed a little touch up.
Now how easy is that and they are oh so fabulous inside or out!
If you make some of your own, I would love to see them!
Linking up to some of these parties.
Have a great weekend!
See you Monday! 🙂
