Anything with glitter is all right by me, lol and these DIY Glitter Pumpkins are easy to make with just a bit of paint, glitter and glue!


I love the new carvable craft pumpkins that are available now. They are very realistic looking.  Of course, nothing compares to the tradition of carving real pumpkins, (then roasting the seeds- yum) but I really like the idea of decorating a pumpkin and then being able to use the pumpkin year after year.

These pumpkins are so cute!  I love anything covered with glitter!

The good thing is making these pumpkins is a pretty simple process.  The most important thing to keep in mind – MAKE SURE your pumpkin says CARVABLE!  As I discovered, not all faux pumpkins are carvable!

(Spray paint would be much easier if you happen to have the color you need, otherwise just use 2 coats of acrylic paint.)

(I spread the glue on with my fingers.  (I used regular white glue on the first pumpkin, but the Modge Podge dried so much faster!)
