Create beautiful glitter pumpkins to add to your fall decor. Below is the step-by-step tutorial and video.
I love the colors of fall. I am fortunate to live close to the mountains and one of my favorite things to do this time of year is take a drive up through the canyons and look at all of the trees changing colors.
It really is quite beautiful. The greens, reds, oranges, and browns are just breathtaking.
The glitter colors I chose for my pumpkins are inspired by all of the changing colors of fall. I wanted to bring those colors indoor and enjoy them every day.
This technique I am going to show you will work on most types of surfaces. Since it is fall, I chose to make glitter mini pumpkins.

How to Make Glitter Pumpkins for Fall Decor
First, apply a coat of Mod Podge. It doesn't need to be too heavy, but you also don't want it to be too light. So just a good amount will do. How is that for instruction? 🙂
As soon as you are done painting on the Mod Podge shake on the glitter. Pour the glitter all over the pumpkin over the craft tray.
I love craft trays because they make it so easy to collect all the glitter that doesn't stick to your project and pour it right back into your container to use it again.
This is a must-have tool if you like to use glitter.
When all of the glittering is done, apply a clear coat. This will help the glitter adhere and less of it will fall off when handling.
When the glitter pumpkins are completely dry you can add them to your fall decor. I put them inside of a wood planter box centerpiece with some ruffled strips of paper and small gold ornaments.
Here is a side view so you can see what it looks like as the centerpiece on my dining room table.
