Glitter Decorated Pumpkins …add a sparkly touch to your Halloween decor this season with these fun, glittered pumpkins!

There’s no better way to get into the spirit of Halloween than by decorating a pumpkin or three, so instead of making a gooey mess, try adding a fun and sparkly touch to your decor this season with these glittered pumpkins! I usually crave tons of jack-o-lanterns during Halloween, but this year a wanted to switch it up and create something different, but still fun for the kids.

Don’t you just love the new craft pumpkins that are available now? They are very realistic looking and of course, nothing compares to the tradition of carving real pumpkins (then roasting the seeds or making pumpkin pie- yum), but I really like the idea of decorating a pumpkin and then being able to use it year after year. There are truly many different ways you can decorate your pumpkins and this year, I’m giving in to glitter! You can never go wrong with glitter.

Before you begin this project be prepared for a glittery mess, but it’s well worth it!

Glitter Decorated Pumpkins Directions:

Step 1: Choose your desired paint colors and paint your pumpkins, then let dry. I decided to paint mine light blue and white. In order to get the crackled look that you see on the white pumpkin use chalk paint and styrofoam pumpkins, apparently chalk paint cracks when it dries against styrofoam.
Step 2: After the paint dries, draw your desired Halloween shapes. Make sure you draw the shape all around the pumpkin. You can draw ghosts, bats, black cats, witch hats, and you can even write spooky words if you wish!

Step 3: With a paint brush apply Mod Podge over your drawing.
Step 4: Sprinkle on glitter! This step is going to be messy but so worth it. After the glitter sprinkling, give your pumpkin a few taps! Just to shake off the excess glitter.

Step 5: Continue this process with different sized shapes for added dimension. Once the glue has dried, use a dry paint brush to lightly brush off excess glitter.
