Adding a little sparkle to your front porch or living room for fall couldn’t be easier thanks to this simple glitter pumpkin craft. You can use any color you want and if you have a glitter-obsessed child like I do, they will love helping with this craft! Here’s what you need:
Pumpkin (mine was artificial)
Mod Podge, any finish
Apply Mod Podge to every other ‘stripe’, but not all at once. Do one stripe at a time so the Mod Podge doesn’t dry on you.
Using a spoon, sprinkle glitter over the place where you have Mod Podged. Repeat until your pumpkin is done.
Once your glitter stripes are dry, your glitter pumpkin is ready to display!

I bought this metal floral cone from Michael’s back in March and it was pink. It was perfect for the spring floral arrangement I made. But that was it. I didn’t really have a use for it after that. So instead of storing it, I gave it new life with some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Provence and dark wax and turned it into a fall project!
I didn’t strip it, sand it or use primer. I just wiped off the dust and started painting. I used two coats of Provence and after that was completely dry (I waited about 4 hours), I gave it a light coat of clear wax and let it sit overnight.
The next morning, I covered it with a thin coat of dark wax, rubbing the wax into the details to give it that distressed, antiqued look and then wiped off the excess wax with a rag.
I picked up an artificial fall floral arrangement at Michael’s and put it in the cone. That was it!
I just love the orange and yellow against the aqua color, don’t you?
