Glam up your pumpkins with this super quick project. These make a great centerpiece and a fun project to do with the kids.
- Elmer’s Glue
- Foam brush
- Pumpkins or Gourds
- Paper plates
- Paint half the pumpkin with Elmer’s glue while holding it by the stem. It is easiest to do half the pumpkin at a time, so you can rest the other side of the pumpkin on the plate.
- Holding the pumpkin over a paper plate, pour the glitter over the glue. Don’t be shy here, the excess glitter will fall onto the plate. Move the pumpkin to a second plate and pour the glitter from the first plate over the pumping again. Repeat until you have good coverage.
- Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the other half of the pumpkin.
- Return the excess glitter to the bottle. Fold the paper plate in half making a funnel to pour the glitter back in the bottle.
I used these glitter pumpkins as a centerpiece for a Halloween feast. To create more interest in the arrangement, I used three different shades of glitter. I put the largest pumpkin on the table. The smaller two pumpkins were elevated on two different height candlesticks.
TIP: If you have bare spots after glittering or want more coverage, spray your pumpkin with spray adhesive and pour on more glitter.
