Pumpkin a la Sparkle!

I got this idea from The pink Tutu. It was such an easy and fun project and cmon who doesn't like glitter??!! 

So to start with..I bought two fake pumpkins from Michael's for approx 10 dollars on sale and then I bought Martha Stewart's Glittering Glue and Glitter in Fire Opal..I can't remember how much I paid for those but I'm not sure not more than 10 dollars or so. 

My pumpkins before....

Here is the glue and glitter I used

I just used Dollar Store craft paintbrushes to brush the glue. I didn't put a lot of glue and it spreads pretty well. The fun part is putting the glitter on. I pressed on the glitter a bit after to make it stick on better. Also, I used an old cookie pan with wax paper to put the pumpkin on it and to put the sparkles to lessen the mess. Although, I'll be honest with you guys, there are sparkles that are going to be on your floor, the cat, my shoes, socks, etc.

And now to the finished product....
