After this post, I was in need of glitter. And with Halloween on the way, there was no better time to glam up some pumpkins—Martha Stewart style.
After reading recommendations, I decided to use fake pumpkins so I can reuse them. I got mine at Michaels (on sale!). I also got the Martha Stewart glittering glue that has the brush applicator, which definitely came in handy. As for glitter, I used smoky quartz for the smaller pumpkin and fire opal for the bigger pumpkin.
Tips: I coated small sections of the pumpkin with glue at a time and then sprinkled on the glitter. This is a much easier way than coating the whole pumpkin in glue and then trying to add glitter. If you don't have glue that comes with a brush applicator, just use a paint brush. Once I sprinkled the glitter on, I spread it with my fingers and patted it down. The glue can cause it to clump so make sure the glue is spread thin.
This project is very easy to do and in no time at all you'll have a sparkly pumpkin!
(And perhaps even a sparkly home if you're generous with the glitter like me ;) )
Go get your sparkle on!
