Glittered Pumpkins

These decorations bring sparkle to tables and serving areas -- and they last far longer than jack-o'-lanterns.

  • Medium-size paintbrush

  • White glue

  • Small pumpkin

  • Paper plate or a sheet of newspaper

  • Glitter

  • Brown acrylic paint


  1. Use a medium-size paintbrush to spread a layer of white glue over the surface of a small pumpkin.

  2. Hold pumpkin over a paper plate or a sheet of newspaper to catch excess glitter. Sprinkle powder glitter over pumpkin in several colors (we used penny, persimmon, orange, and pink champagne), covering completely.

  3. Let dry for about one hour; shake off excess glitter.

  4. Coat stem with brown acrylic paint; let dry. Pumpkins will keep for months.
