Fall is here! Time to Glitter up the Pumpkins!


It's funny how Halloween has become such a large event for families. I can remember as a kid how we wore the cheap costumes, with the plastic face mask with the cheap rubber bands that broke by the second trick-or treat stop. Now, it's hand made costumes, big parties and much more of a whole family277863249_d77b6da53c_3 event. That's good! One of the things we also noticed (call it a trend I guess) is the burst of orange glass glitter sales in late September and October. I put on my Private Investigator Hat and realized that Glass Glitter Pumpkins were quite the rage. We had one customer create 50 Glittered Pumpkins as a centerpiece for a wedding they were planning.

That's a lot of Glitter Pumpkins! Glitterpumpkins For anyone who wants to Glitter Up some Pumpkins, here is all you need to know! You will need:

1) Real (or plastic) Pumpkins - 3" to 6" pumpkins work the best.

2) Spray Glue (Any good Spray On Craft Adhesive)

3) Real German Meyer Imports Glass Glitter


Instructions

  1. Protect your work surface with newspaper (or something)2129272105_3
  2. Spray Pumpkin with adhesive working one side at a time. Follow manufacturer’s instructions when working with spray adhesive.
  3. Sprinkle the glass glitter evenly over adhesive, shake off extra. Pour glitter on pumpkin again and fill in exposed areas.
  4. Repeat process completing your project.
  5. Impress your friends with your amazing talent!
