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...
Apply spray paint
After paint dries, apply Mod Podge to the top of the pumpkin and leaves, and sprinkle with glitter.
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!
