Pretty Pumpkins - Day 4

If you know us at all, you know we're suckers for sparkle.  Ok, glitter really.  Linda will spray glitter just about anything.  So we selected these little mini pumpkins for Day 4 because they're called...wait for it... Glittered Pumpkins.

Here are the step-by-step instructions from

The process is pretty straightforward: Just brush the pumpkin with glue, then sprinkle with glitter. But to ensure success, follow these editor-tested tips:
- Elevate the pumpkin. To reach trickier places with ease (and allow excess glitter to settle), create a "pumpkin platform": place an old cooling rack atop a baking sheet lined with wax paper.
- Let the glue dry beforehand. In this craft, tacky is good. For maximum adhesion, let glue dry for 30 seconds-1 minute before applying glitter.
- Use nice glitter. There's nothing wrong with standard glitter, but it can be a little chunky. For the most sophisticated sparkle, try a finer glitter. I like Art Institute Ultrafine Glitter.
This would be stunning on larger pumpkins as well, so get your glitter on and show some sparkle.
