Fall is one of my favorite season’s not only because of all the beautiful scenery but I love decorating for the holidays. Today I have teamed up with Lulu’s for their Something Wicked Blog Week to share with you my DIY Glitter Pumpkin. The glitter pumpkins are great for Halloween or Thanksgiving, so if you already have your decor for Halloween here is an early idea for Thanksgiving.
This is a super easy craft,  just be ready for a glitter party 🙂

MATERIALS:
Pumpkins 
Modge Podge
Foam Brush
Glitter
Tape
Paper Plates

STEP 1:
Clean and dry the pumpkins
STEP 2:
Tape design on pumpkins
I chose to do a dip dye look for this set. I have also done a chevron print which is cute, but the dips are my favorite. For the dip dye look, just wrap tape around the pumpkin so you have a clean crisp line. 
STEP 3:
Paint a thick layer of modge podge on the sections you want glitter. 
I have found foam brushes work the best and they are the least expensive, but any brush works. 
STEP 4:
Generously sprinkle the glitter onto the modge podge.
I like to put a paper plate under the pumpkin as I’m sprinkling so it’s easier to pour the excess glitter back in the container after (it also helps with the mess). You want to dump the glitter on pretty thick, a lot of it sprinkles off at first. 
STEP 5:
Shake off any excess glitter and touch up any spots you missed.
STEP 6:
Let your pumpkin completely dry.
STEP 7:
Paint a top coat of modge podge on your dry pumpkin to help seal the glitter. 
This will help the the excess glitter from falling everywhere. They also have a spray modge podge that works to seal it and is a little less messy, but I just use the same one I applied to the pumpkin.
STEP 8:
TADA! Your done!
