Camping Glitter Pumpkins

October 7, 2015

It’s that time of year! Bring your pumpkins on a #KOACamping trip and try out these crafty ideas!

Glitter Pumpkin

Glitter Pumpkins

  • Glitter
  • Mod Podge
  • Permanent Markers (Black, Red)
  • Small Foam Paint Brush
  • Spray Paint (Metallic Gold)
  • Newspaper or paper bags
  • Camping Pumpkin Templates

Place the pumpkin outside on newspaper or paper bags. Spray paint the entire pumpkin with the Metallic Gold while making sure the wind blows in the opposite direction. Once the paint has dried, apply Mod Podge to the pumpkin stem using a foam brush and slowly pour glitter over it. The Mod Podge dries rather quickly, so make sure to cover the entire stem with glitter while the glue is still wet. Once dried, draw your design on the pumpkin using Permanent Markers and these Camping Pumpkin Templates.
