Glam Pumpkins

Glam Pumpkins

I was looking for a way to glam up one of my little baby pumpkins and I planned on using glitter. Sometimes when I go into my craft closet for one thing, I come out with a whole new plan. This is one of those times!

This pumpkin was a pretty perfect one, except for it's round bottom (a problem a lot of us would love to have, right?) Using my mandolin, I just sliced the bottom off, so it would have a flat spot to stand on. 

Armed with scissors, metallic tissue paper and modge podge, I began to glamorize.

ONE:

Cut tissue paper into giblets, tiny pieces, confetti, whatever you want to call it.

TWO:

Cover your pumpkin in modge podge (or glue).

THREE:

Sprinkle on your shiny confetti.

FOUR:

Repeat THREE. 

It's not perfect, as it's not totally covered, but I love the little glam it brought to my living room. This would be a fun project to do with the kiddos. Sprinkle on store-bought confetti. Sprinkle on magazine clippings. Sprinkle on sprinkles. The possibilities await you!
