Materials Needed:

  • 5-6 faux pumpkins and/or gourds
  • craft paint and paint brush
  • spray glitter paint
  • faux berries, leaves or garland
  • hot glue gun

Paint Pumpkin

First remove the stem from the pumpkin and start painting with craft paint. Craft paint is thicker than the spray glitter paint. Add another thin layer of color and shine with spray glitter paint. White pumpkins are even easier; they only need a sprinkle of glitter.

Attach Embellishments

Cut apart decorative "holiday picks" and glue them to the top of the pumpkins. This collection of pretty pumpkins works as well on a dining table as a centrepiece as it does on a coffee table.
