I love Pumpkins.
In the soup, in a pie. Oh how wonderful pumpkins are.
Besides that, it doesn’t hurt that they are great to use as fall decorations around your home. And another bonus, you can DIY with pumpkins!
Obviously, you can carve your pumpkins, but let me say one word:
Let’s play with mini pumpkins and glitter!
How to make DIY Glitter Drip Mini Pumpkins.
DIY Glitter Drip Pumpkin Supplies
- Faux mini pumpkins (you could use real mini pumpkins, but you won’t be able to decorate with them next fall. Artificial Pumpkins are keepers!)
- Black acrylic paint
- Mod Podge (or PVA glue)
- Gold glitter
Step 1. Paint.
Paint the mini pumpkins with black acrylic paint. Don’t forget about the stems.
Let them dry thoroughly.
Step 2. Mod Podge.
Next, pour Mod Podge on top, all around the bottom of the stem. Slowly add more so it starts to drip over the pumpkins ribs. While holding the pumpkins, gently move and turn them to help the Mod Podge to flow.
Step 3. Glitter.
And now for the part we’ve been waiting for. Glitter! While the Mod Podge is still wet, generously sprinkle glitter. So shiny!
Step 4. Finish.
Finally, when they have dried, gently shake off any excess glitter. Use a small brush to wipe away glitter around the drips.
All Done! Now you have yourself some sparkly fall decorations for years to come. Mine are going on the fireplace mantel. Pretty!
