Glitter Pumpkins

Can you feel the cool fall air lingering in the shadows when you step out of the sun?  There is no doubt... fall is just around the corner.  I love this season because of the colors, the smells, the baking, the snuggling with those we love... and the decorations!  Enjoy these directions for making beautiful glitter pumpkins.
Ceramic Pumpkins (Found at the Dollar Store!) or Actual Pumpkins
Mod Podge
Fine Cut Glitter
Paint Brush
2 Paper Plates
Clear Spray Paint or Spray-On Craft Sealant

Paint the areas with Mod Podge that you want glittered (you may want to leave the stems unpainted).  Pour your glitter on one of your plates.  Next, pour it over your pumpkin making sure the other paper plate catches the excess glitter under the pumpkin.  Keep going back and forth with the pouring of the glitter until the whole pumpkin is thoroughly covered.  Tap the pumpkin stem to the plate on the table so the excess glitter falls off and set the pumpkin aside on newspaper.  Let the pumpkin(s) dry overnight, then spray with clear spray paint or spray-on craft sealant to ensure that the glitter doesn't come off when handled.

I hope your fall season sparkles with blessings!
