Gold Glitter Pumpkins

Gold Glitter Pumpkins

Posted by DecoArt on Oct 26th 2014

We love decorating with pumpkins, and sadly mainly faux pumpkins since Arizona is so warm, the real ones mold too quickly. But the perk of fakes are the ability to decorate them with permanent decor to reuse year after year! This season we decided to jump on the gold trend. And what compliments gold? Glitter of course!

Items Needed:

  • Foam Brush
  • Painter's Tape
  • Fake Pumpkins
  • Water Basin
  • Palette


You only need 3 ingredients + your pumpkins and some inexpensive foam brushes to make your own.

Optional but recommended: Spray a coat of sealer over dust to prevent glitter from shedding.
