Looking for cute Halloween decorations instead of scary ones to adorn your house with?

Try these glitter pumpkins.  Place them on windowsills and mantels.  They will last for weeks and look great through out the holidays!

Step 1: Materials

1. Small Pumpkins
2. Glitter
3. Spray Adhesive
4. Spray sealant (lacquer)
5. Newspaper or cardboard

Step 2: Decorating Pumpkins

GO OUTSIDE for this step!

Spray pumpkins with adhesive.

Shake glitter over pumpkins.  Lightly cover them with glitter or cover all surface area...your choice!  Let dry for 1 hour.

Spray with sealant.  Cover entire pumpkin.  Do about 2-3 coats.  Let dry for 2 hours (or however long sealant takes to dry)

Pain the stem of the pumpkin black or brown.

Display for all to see!
