Supplies for DIY Glitter Pumpkins

– Mini White Pumpkins – Mod Podge – Brown Extra Chunky Glitter – Paintbrush – Wax Paper or Newspaper:  – Clear Sealant Spray (Optional) – Ribbon (Optional)

DIY Glitter Pumpkins Step #1: Prepare Your Workspace

To help with cleanup, cover your workspace with wax paper, newspaper, or a disposable tablecloth to catch any glitter that falls off of the pumpkins while you’re crafting.

DIY Glitter Pumpkins Step #2: Clean Pumpkins

If you’re using real pumpkins like I did, clean your mini white pumpkins to remove any dirt or debris.

DIY Glitter Pumpkins Step #3: Apply Mod Podge to Top of Pumpkin

Using a paintbrush, apply a thin, even layer of Mod Podge to the surface of the top half of the pumpkin making sure to get into the ribs as well.

DIY Glitter Pumpkins Step #4: Sprinkle Glitter

Holding your pumpkin over a piece of wax paper, generously sprinkle the brown glitter all over the Mod Podge coated surface. Let the tops of the pumpkins dry completely for about 1-2 hours.

DIY Glitter Pumpkins Step #5: Repeat Process on the Bottom of Pumpkins

Once the pumpkin tops are dry, repeat the same Mod Podge and glitter processes for the bottom of the pumpkin.

DIY Glitter Pumpkins Step 6: Seal Pumpkins (optional)

To prevent the glitter from shedding, you can spray your glitter pumpkins with a clear sealant spray. I did not do this step, but this will help your pumpkins keep longer.

DIY Glitter Pumpkins Step 7: Finishing Touch (optional)

Once your glitter pumpkins are dry, you can add some additional touches to enhance their “glam factor” like tying a bow around the pumpkin stem.
