After scooping up some pumpkins from the local patch a few weeks ago, we decided to ditch the usual carve-a-face-into-it technique and try something completely new. With just masking tape, some paint, adhesive, and a WHOLE LOTTA glitter, we were able to transform our otherwise plain gourd into an eye-popping centerpiece.
If you’re interested in ditching the jack-o’-lantern routine this year as well, here’s a super simple glitter pumpkin DIY you should try.
Large pumpkin (we picked one with a long stem so we could paint it)
Paint & paintbrush
Use the masking tape to section the pumpkin in half, wrapping horizontally.
In a well ventilated area, coat the lower portion of the pumpkin with spray adhesive. While the glue is wet, use sprinkle glitter over the surface of the pumpkin. Let dry.
Carefully peel off masking tape.
Paint stem and that’s it!
