GlitterPumpkins

Hi everyone! I am Christine from Hello Fashion. I typically blog about fashion and share my street style, but once in awhile I like to share a DIY when I’m feeling crafty. Fall is one of my favorite seasons, not only because of all the beautiful scenery, but I love decorating for the holidays. Today I am so excited to share with you my DIY Glitter Pumpkin. This is a super easy craft, just be ready for a glitter party :)

MATERIALS:
Pumpkins
Mod Podge
Foam Brush
Glitter
Tape
Paper Plates

STEP 1:
Clean and dry the pumpkins.

STEP 2:
Tape design on pumpkins.
I chose to do a dip dye look for this set. I have also done a chevron print which is cute, but the dips are my favorite. For the dip dye look, just wrap tape around the pumpkin so you have a clean, crisp line.

STEP 3:
Paint a thick layer of mod podge on the sections you want to be glittery. I have found foam brushes work the best and they are the least expensive, but any brush works.

STEP 4:
Generously sprinkle the glitter onto the mod podge. I like to put a paper plate under the pumpkin as I’m sprinkling so it’s easier to pour the excess glitter back in the container after (it also helps with the mess). You want to dump the glitter on pretty thick; a lot of it sprinkles off at first.

STEP 5:
Shake off any excess glitter and touch up any spots you missed.

STEP 6:
Let your pumpkin completely dry.

STEP 7:
Paint a top coat of mod podge on your dry pumpkin to help seal the glitter. This will help keep the excess glitter from falling everywhere. They also have a spray mod podge that works to seal it and is a little less messy, but I just used the same one I applied to the pumpkin.

STEP 8:
TADA! You’re done!
Hope you all have a great Halloween!

XOX,
Christine
