Day 4: 16 Days of Creating - Sparkle Pumpkins

I was very excited to try this project - based on something I saw at the What Cheer Flea Market a while back. It involves all my favorite tools - Mod Podge, hot glue & glitter! It's so easy I doubt if instructions are necessary, but just in case...


STEP 1:

Gather materials: Small pumpkins and/or gourds, spray paint, Mod Podge & foam brush, glitter. You'll also want to spread out some newspaper or do the painting outdoors.


I also added some artificial leaves...


STEP 2:

Apply spray paint



STEP 3:
After paint dries, apply Mod Podge to the top of the pumpkin and leaves, and sprinkle with glitter.




 STEP 4:

When everything is dry, hot-glue the leaves to the pumpkins. How easy was that??





Oh, and aren't those tree branch candle sticks great?? I wish I could take credit for those, but they were centerpieces at a wedding we attended a few years ago, and we got to take them home as "party favors". They are always part of my fall decorating in one way or another!
