My sister and I love to craft together – but we both like things that are easy and inexpensive. The glittered Halloween pumpkins I’m sharing with you today were all her idea and that’s why they are so cute. The Dollar Store happens to be one of my favorite places to shop – we’ve discussed that here before. These are easy and inexpensive, plus I can’t resist a little sparkle!
Dollar Store Glittered Halloween Pumpkins
Last weekend while the boys were at the BYU football game, we had a girls night. We ate pizza and popcorn and made these glittered pumpkins. The pumpkins were purchased at Dollar Tree for $1 each.
We used a foam brush to paint them with a bit of Mod Podge. (Below, I’m helping my daughter Lucy spread the mod podge on the pumpkin)
Then we sprinkled the glorious glitter on them and let them dry. (Below, Susan chose clear glitter and it gave the pumpkin a sugared look. My favorite ended up being the gold, but I think I’d like to try one with black glitter too!)
See I told you it was simple & affordable. They were easy enough for the girls to do, and inexpensive enough that if they didn’t turn out great (which they did) it wasn’t a big deal! Not only are they cute and sparkly, but it was SO much fun for us and the girls. You can’t put a price on that!
