Prepare Work Area
Put down a layer of newspaper topped with a sheet of craft paper to protect the work surface. Then select pumpkins of various sizes and colors, and decide which ones will receive which color glitter.
Apply Adhesive and Glitter
Spray the top and middle portion of a pumpkin with spray adhesive. While the glue is still wet, use a spoon to sprinkle glitter over the sticky surface of the pumpkin. Allow to dry.
Tip: Unless you want to glitter the stem, try not to spray it with adhesive. Cover it with painter's tape if necessary.
Remove Excess Glitter
Pick up the pumpkin and shake off any glitter that didn't fully adhere. Set the pumpkin aside and fold the craft paper to funnel the excess glitter back into its original container.
