Glitter Pumpkin DIY

If you've been on my blog before, you know that I love a simple DIY and these glitter-painted pumpkins are just that. These probably don't even warrant a tutorial, but they are a great way to spice up your growing pumpkin collection (you don't have a growing pumpkin collection? That's just me? Bummer...) or use for a table or mantle centerpiece. Here's what you'll need...

Pumpkins, Glitter Paint, and a Paint brush. See told you this was simple.

Use the paint brush to paint a thin coat of glitter paint over half of your pumpkin. Sit the pumpkin on the non-painted side and lean it on its steam until dry. You'll need 3-4 coats of paint, depending on how much bling you want your pumpkin to have.

Once you've let your last coat fully dry, repeat the painting with the other side of the pumpkin to get full glitter coverage. Let dry and that's it. Bam, glitter pumpkin.

As I said, I currently have a collection of pumpkins on our bookcase because I love all the different size, shapes, and colors that you can get pumpkins and gords in. Each year, I tend to buy a bunch of different ones to group places around our apartment and these gold glitter ones are perfect to mix and match with. 

Painting pumpkins might be an addiction that I just uncanned...I'm thinking chalkboard paint next. (!!!!!)
