I created this blog so I would have somewhere to journal and share the things I make and do. I try not to steal other's ideas. Some of what I make I have seen in homes or in stores. Or I make a spin-off of something I have seen elsewhere. I will always try to give the proper credit where it is due.

Glitter Pumpkins

I saw these pumpkins on Martha Stewart's show, like, 5-6 years ago. They are so easy to make and look great for the fall season.

Here's what you need to make them...
Mini pumpkins, mod podge{or any craft glue, I've even used Elmers glue before and it works fine}, a paint brush, and glitter. Now some people will say you need to use the really nice, fine glitter. But I just use my daughters craft glitter.

Paint some glue on your pumpkin...

Then sprinkle on some glitter and shake off the excess...

There you go! I put mine in a long wooden plate I got at Wal-mart last year for cheap. I think they still have something similar in the dishes aisle. Then I added some leaves and I wish I didn't run out of berries, I might go buy some more to add....

I ran out of the gold glitter, so the middle pumpkin doesn't have as much on it as the red ones. But I think it still looks good. You get the idea!
