You can carve a pumpkin, decorate it with glitter and glue, paint it or just add some accessories to it. My favorite way to decorate a pumpkin is to paint it AND add some decorations to it. I love this bug painted pumpkin. You need a couple pumpkins for this one as you stack them on top of each other. You also need some chenille stems curled for antennae, googly eyes, butterfly wings and acrylics to make it sparkle and shine. It’s really quite easy to make, just be sure you let everything dry before moving on to the next step.
