All That Glitters Is Gold

After seeing some of Martha's glittered pumpkins, I wanted to try some for myself. Last year, near the end of fall, I got a few ceramic pumpkins on sale (90% off) at Hobby Lobby. They have just been waiting for the perfect project. So, I got out my Martha glitter and got to work. And yes, you do have to use the Martha Stewart glitter. I couldn't quite understand how Martha could make her glitter so special, but she does. It is so airy, like powder and just has more sparkle.

This project is pretty easy, but somewhat time consuming and very messy. All you have to do is spread glue or Mod Podge on the pumpkin(s) evenly then sprinkle on the glitter. I did my pumpkins section by section for a smooth application. Let them dry for a little while -I let mine dry over night. Just be prepared, the glitter gets everywhere. But, in the end you'll have pretty little pumpkins to add to your fall decor.

Happy Fall!
