{Funky Find Friday} Glitter Pumpkins

posted on: Friday, October 15, 2010

I have this love/hate relationship with Wal-mart. I love the fact that I can get everything from bananas to windshield wipers all under the same roof. However, I hate the parking, long lines, and that I always manage to buy more then what is on my list.

Yesterday, was a love day. Hence, the glitter pumpkins.  

While scanning the fall section I came across these nifty little pumpkins. Although they are as ugly, I mean ugly,  I knew that with a little TLC they could look amazing on my kitchen table.

I got the glitter effect by using  Crystal Clear Tacky Spray to spray the entire pumpkin. I then began to slowly pour glitter over the sprayed areas. NOTE: I wore gloves because the tacky spray, well, it is sticky, very sticky. I also did this project in the garage. The spray covers everything. 

While, the pumpkins dried I set up the display on the table. I used a white serving platter to arrange the pumpkins. However, I put it upside down on the table so it would help elevate the pumpkins. I then arranged berry garland around the outside of the platter to give added color to the arrangement.

I then arranged the pumpkins on and around the platter.

 Simple and easy Fall centerpiece in less then 15 minutes.

    The glitter is copper colored and it is from Johanns. It comes is a fairly big bottle so don't feel like you need to buy a lot.
