It’s that spins-tingling time of year again where spooky pumpkins are a must-have decoration. Here are 2 ideas to decorate one yourself:
*Pumpkin (real or fake)
*Material to cover your workspace
The first step to covering a pumpkin in glitter is to apply an adhesive, in this case mod Podge. Use a sponge brush to coat small sections of the pumpkin in glue. Then, sprinkle and pat the glitter into the glue. Once the entire pumpkin is covered in a strong layer of glitter, let it dry. Later, to keep the glitter put, coat the entire pumpkin in another layer of mod Podge and let it dry.
Splatter Paint Pumpkin
*2 or more colors of paint
*Newspaper or other table covering
This one can get messy, so be sure to cover your workspace. First, paint the pumpkin with a solid layer of paint. Then, once that layer is dry, dip a paint brush in your other color(s) of paint. Next, flick the dripping paint brush against the popsicle stick, over the pumpkin. Paint will fly off and create a splatter effect on the pumpkin. Once the entirety pumpkin is splattered to your liking, let it dry and you’re done!
