Halloween Glitter Pumpkins

By: Chelsea Iacopelli from
Halloween Glitter Pumpkins
Halloween Glitter Pumpkins

"I somehow ended up with 6 foam pumpkins from the dollar tree this year. I honestly don’t know how it happened. They just seem to multiply like tribbles or something. I made it my mission this week to “edit” at least one of them so I could join the cool club of wonderfully painted and decorated pumpkins. Grab some paint, glue and glitter and no one will believe that these glitter pumpkins cost you less than $5 TOTAL. Seriously. Everything came from the dollar tree. Even the paint. Girl get on it!"

This is a super easy and inexpensive craft to make for fall or Halloween and safe enough that even a child can make them. Great for a classroom decoration or even your house. Just uses some foam pumpkins,paint and glitter or just use paint. This would also be a great weekend project for a group of kids or slumber party. Easy tutorial. Thanks.

I would like to make these using different colors of glitter all on one pumpkin. I think I should be able to maybe loosely tape, using washi crafting tape which does not stick to surfaces and is easily removable, along with a piece of parchment... to cover the area of the pumpkin that I don't want to get glittery. I am not sure entirely if this will actually work. I just think it would be so cool to do a silver stripe and a black stripe or perhaps purple and orange together. This looks fun!
