Can I just tell ya glitter is my Crack !!
I loves me anything that glitters, shines, sparkles, lights up.....
You can use fake pumpkins ,or real .I like the fake jobbies cause I can keep them from year to year.I did mine about 3 years ago, and store them in the basement, and they look as great as the day I did them.
Spread glue evenly over the pumpkin's surface using the paintbrush. You'll want to do about one-fourth of the pumpkin at a time, spreading glue and adding glitter. Make sure there are no clumps of glue anywhere. You can also use spray glue.Make sure to lay down enough newspaper.
Sprinkle glitter over the pumpkin until the glue is fully covered. The newspaper underneath will catch the extra glitter so you can reuse what has fallen off. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until the pumpkin is fully glittered.
Once the pumpkin is completely covered with glitter, let it dry for an hour.
There are about a dozen glitter pumpkins on this tablescape, but with all the food, you cant see them very well. Any way, they are beautiful against candlelight.Trust me! I have also used them at each place setting with name cards attached, but be careful if you do this....your guests will take them home with them!
