I speak from experience... EVERYTHING is more fabulous when coated in GLITTER!

Our friend Jim Noonan made this lovely pumpkin for me!  Isn't it divine?


You will need:

Craft glue

Glitter - we used several colors


  1. Using your paintbrush, paint an entire section of the pumpkin with glue. Follow the natural lines of the pumpkin segments.
  2. Dust wet glue with glitter. Continue this process around the pumpkin, alternating colors.
  3. Allow to dry completely.
  4. BOO!


The coat of glitter and glue on a natural pumpkin gives it a very short shelf-life.  If you want this project to last a long time, consider using one of those amazingly lifelike foam pumpkins!
