glam pumpkins

How do you like these glam pumpkins that mama fabulous & I made?

We started with a bunch of pumpkins...the more imperfect, the better...

and sprayed them all with our favorite, Heirloom White...

until we had pretty white pumpkins.

Then we sat down with our pumpkins, german glass glitter in halloween colors and some simple, elmer's school glue...

and got to decorating.

We decided to use german glass glitter instead of traditional glitter.  It's tiny pieces of glass, available in course and fine grain.  It's much more sophisticated & glam then plain glitter. {Keep in mind though...if you do this project with kids then you'll want to use glitter instead.}  

Isn't this pretty?

Aren't those little pieces of glass so lovely?

I love how they turned out!

These glam pumpkins sure do make me happy...

What do you think?
