Glitter Pumpkins

This is an easy craft that will add a little sparkle to your holiday!

What you'll need:
-Mini pumpkin. (fake or real- mine are fake)
-Glitter (Your color choice)
-Mod Podge
-Paint brush

The how to:
-Pick your pumpkin.

-Paint a thick coat of Mod Podge all over your pumpkin.

-Place a paper plate or bowl under your pumpkin and pour glitter all over it. Fill in all white spots.

-Place pumpkin on wax paper and allow to dry.

-Touch up the bottom of pumpkin and any other exposed areas if needed.

-Once dry add a second coat of Mod Podge over the top of the glitter on the entire pumpkin.
This will dry clear and ensure the glitter will not flake off.

-Once Mod Podge is dry your pumpkins are ready to display!

Do real gourds or pumpkins keep if you do this to them or do they eventually rot?

I think they will eventually rot. Go fake if you plan to keep it long term.
