A fun and easy (although a bit messy) way to give your pumpkins a face-lift! Kids of all ages will enjoy this and even the little ones can take part (We let our 18 month old get in on the action and he loved it)!
Here’s what you need:
Pumpkins -if you’d like to reuse them, buy the fake pumpkins from a craft store
Glue -Elmer’s will work just fine, you want to be sure it’s runny enough to paint it on
Paint Brush -I always get the sponge one’s, they are cheap and you can throw them away when you’re done
Glitter -Peyton chose purple and green but you can do any colors that match your Halloween theme or home decor
Start with glue on a paper plate or bowl. From their, the kids can dip their paintbrushes in it to paint the pumpkins and you can toss the plate when your done. I helped out at the end to make sure that they had every inch covered.
Next, sprinkle the glitter over the pumpkins (make sure you get enough glitter. We had small pumpkins and used 2 tubes of glitter on each). We ended up with a lot of glitter on the paper towels so after we had sprinkled we rolled the pumpkins in it to cover them.
When your done, let them dry and display anywhere! They make great center pieces!
Oh, and have fun cleaning up!
