How to make easy DIY glitter pumpkins to add a touch of glam to your fall decor.
Ok ya’ll, are you ready for an easy fall pumpkin craft? It seems like I say that every time I share something but this really a is super simple project.
Super simple, but it adds a little touch of glam to your fall decor.
So, I have a little confession to make. I have never liked glitter. Never.
Everyone in my family knows about this little quirk. We’ve always had an unspoken rule in our house that you didn’t bring glitter into the house, whether it was on a greeting card or decor.
I just had this fear thing with the mess. You’d touch it and it would automatically stick with you the entire day. Usually on your face. I just never got the appeal.
All was well and I lived a happy, glitter-free life…until a few weeks ago.
The hubs and I were in the craft store and I started looking at glitter. Yes, me…the anti-glitter Queen. My husband thought I’d gone off the deep end.
He just couldn’t believe that I was going to bring glitter into our house…and that I was going to actually make something with it.
I shrugged off his teasing and brought it home. I wanted to glam up some inexpensive faux pumpkins and I wanted to do it using glitter, conquering my fear of it once and for all.

I had a moment of doubt right before I opened the little jar of glitter but I didn’t let it stop me.
I coated my faux pumpkin with Mod Podge and sprinkled glitter all over it until it was covered.
Do you know what happened?
The world didn’t end…
…the house didn’t cave in.
I used glitter and survived to tell the tale. Not only did I use glitter but it was fun, and I loved how they transformed my cheap little pumpkins.
Hands down it’s the easiest way to glam up your fall decor.
Will I ever use glitter again?
Can my family start buying me cards with glitter?
