Sometimes life just calls for a little sparkle!
This weekend I had some girlfriends over for a fall brunch and I wanted to add a little sparkle to the table. These glitter pumpkins were easy to make and added the perfect amount of sparkle to our brunch. I used them as a placecard decoration for each seat, but you could also use these just to decorate your table or decorate around the house! These are perfect for a Halloween celebration, Thanksgiving table or just for fall. Below are the instructions on how to make- hope this helps you add a little sparkle to your fall 🙂
- Mini Pumpkins
- Painter’s Tape
- Paper plate
- Rubber Cement
- Glitter in your color of choice (I chose gold)
- Card stock or tags (If you want to use for place settings)
First, set up your work station with a paper plate and newspaper. This will help catch any excess glitter and also give you some place to dry the pumpkins.
Use painter’s tape to mark off the area you want to glitter.
Paint portion of pumpkin you wish to cover in glitter with rubber cement.
Pour glitter over rubber cemented part of pumpkin.
Shake off any excess glitter.
Allow to dry for a few hours. Remove painter’s tape once dry
If using as place settings, add cardstock with name to rest on pumpkin stem. I used a Sharpie Paint Pen to write the names in the same color as my glitter.
Put out your sparkly, glittery pumpkins for all the world to enjoy! (Or at least anyone that comes to your home 🙂 )
