As you may know, or may not know, I love glitter/sequins/sparkle. I guess I don't just love it, I am slightly obsessed. If it weren't for my fiance, my house would probably look like a glitter fairy took over. As I was browsing Hobby Lobby for tulle to make my birthday tutu I came across a bare pumpkin just begging me to cover it in glitter! Lucky for me, and probably my fiance, it was the last and only $5 pumpkin! Just as Henry was about to get his dining room table back from my "Will you be my..." Card mess, along came my glittery pumpkin task!
1. Mod Podge/Decoupage
4. Paint brush
5. Foil lined bowl
I had decoupage from previous decoupage projects, so I used decoupage - mod podge is the exact same thing, just different "brand". For large surfaces, regular glitter is fine. However, for small areas and detailing try Martha Stewarts Ultra Fine glitter - it is truly amazing!
