All That Glitters

Do you have a thing for glitter? It’s definitely one of my favorite things and I like to use it whenever I can. This year as in years past, I used glitter to make our white- mini- pumpkins sparkle.

If you are going to do this project with kids, get some Mod Podge at your local craft store and let them paint the tops of the pumpkins using a paintbrush. If I’m by myself, I use spray adhesive, because I’m lacking on patience and like to get things done quickly. Then, hover the pumpkin over a torn-out piece of magazine paper, and sprinkle the glitter over the glued spaces. I used SULYN Industries, Inc. “Glitter” in white. The pieces of glitter are rather large and look like real frost. You can get thin glitter for a more elegant look, but I like the way the larger pieces look. When you are finished, crease the magazine page in half and let the glitter funnel back into the glitter container.

Find a cozy place: entry table, coffee table, nightstand, anywhere that might get a glow from a lamp or candle, and place them in a group of odd numbers. You might also like to cut a tiny slit in the stem and use them for placeholders at Thanksgiving.

However you decide to decorate with glitter, make it a family tradition.
