Last Fall, my daughters and I bought a variety of pumpkins and went at them armed with glue, glitter glue, and lots and lots of glitter!
(And one of these years, since it IS spring as I write this, I’ll maybe actually remember to try this with Easter eggs…)
The pumpkins in the background resemble some of our past pumpkin decorating efforts.
But this year I changed it up just a little and decorated a couple of the mini pumpkins with nothing but silver and gold glitter glue.
I started at the center of the top of the pumpkin, slowly pouring out the glitter glue in a tight circle around the stem. I did a gold circle, then a silver one, then gold, et cetera, keeping the circles tight and touching each other until I had the entire top of the pumpkin covered in a thick layer of glitter glue and it was just barely starting to drip down the sides in the creases.
That’s it! Just drew circles with the glue.
And look how pretty!
