Glitter Pumpkins

With a supply of pumpkins and more than enough glitter on hand, I thought I would make some glitter-embellished pumpkins. Let me show you.

Here's what you'll need: 
Glue or Mod Podge

First, give your pumpkins a quick wash to remove any dirt. 

After your pumpkins are dry, it's time to let the glitter fly!

For my first pumpkin, I used some paint in an easy-to-use bottle. You can find paint or glue like this at any craft store. 

After I had my design, I sprinkled it with glitter, then let it dry completely.

For my other pumpkins, I just used Mod Podge and a paintbrush to paint on my designs.

I worked in sections, painting on the Mod Podge and then applying the glitter. 

After the glitter was set and everything was dry, I used a large paintbrush to brush off any excess glitter.

After that, my pumpkins were ready to go!

Pretty cute, right? A festive look for my dining room. 

I pulled my designs and colors from a table runner that I also made this weekend. More on that Wednesday.

As much as I love carving pumpkins, I think painted, or in my case, glittered pumpkins, seem to last so much longer. 

That's it! Some new fun, festive, and sparkly decor. 

I'm saving the washi tape and stamper for jazzing up my envelopes. 

Too fun, right? The sayings on this thing kill me. I'm going to have a lot of fun with this!

For more information about these and other supplies, you can connect with Consumer Crafts on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and their blog.

And don't forget to tell your friends about Consumer Crafts for a chance to win $250 in their Refer a Friend contest! You can win $250 worth of prizes!

That's it!
