Directions

  1. Cut the paper bag along the seams until it lays flat on the ground. This will be your savior because paint and glitter will take over your floor. You can skip this step—but we warned you! Pumpkin Sorority Craft
  2. Start painting the pumpkin with top to bottom brush strokes, going over the strokes a couple of times before letting it dry. Apply second or third coats so your pumpkin looks thoroughly painted and less streaky. Cute Halloween Crafts
  3. While your pumpkin is drying from the last round of paint, heavily sprinkle the top of the pumpkin several times with gold glitter. You want the top of the pumpkin to be more or less gold. Move around your pumpkin with lighter taps of the glitter. Make sure you do this while the pumpkin paint is still wet!! You might end up with splotchy white spots if you wait too long. Glitter Pumpkin Project
  4. Grab the stem of your pumpkin and shake lightly so any access glitter falls onto the bag (see how useful it is?) rather than on your floor. Let dry for 20 minutes.
  5. Enjoy! Write on the rest of it with a gold pen or leave it be, whatever you do, smile at the sparkle! Gold Sparkles Pumpkin DIY
