Gold Glitter Pumpkins with Burlap

How to make Gold Glitter Pumpkins

This is a super easy two part project. Supplies: To make the glittered pumpkins, you’ll need plastic pumpkins, gold paint (I uses DecoArt Metallic) and glitter.

Directions: Simply paint the pumpkin gold (allowing them time to dry) then apply a final coat of paint and sprinkle gold glitter.

And then… the burlap! The small pumpkins needed a little something extra to rest on. Burlap to the rescue!

Supplies: To make the burlap “bow” you’ll need burlap ribbon, faux leaves and either a string of burlap or metal wire. You’ll also need hot glue.

Directions: Cut a 24 inch piece of ribbon and fold it in thirds. Gently tear off a string of burlap or snip a piece of metal wire and tie it around the center of the ribbon. Flip it over and use hot glue to attach leaves to opposite sides of the bow. Glue a small glittered pumpkin to the burlap to finish the project.
