Whew! How's that for a wordy title??
When I shared my Fall Tablescape with you I promised that I would tell you how I created my pretty, glitter pumpkins. So that's what I want to do today. Aren't you EXCITED??
I had seen some glitter pumpkins in a magazine a while back and was determined to make some this year. The process seemed a bit time consuming, however. And honestly, this year (okay really every year) time consuming just wasn't going to work for me.
But when I was putting away the paint from my laundry room makeover, I found this in my paint stash...
I won it at a blog event last year, and was never quite sure what I wanted to do with it...and that's when inspiration hit me! Why not use it on my orange faux pumpkins?? I was never completely sold on the "too orange-y" color of them, and I was hoping that the glitter spray would tone them down. (Just want to insert right here, that I have no affiliation with Krylon - I just wanted to post this for fun!)
It did exactly what I'd hoped! I sprayed it lightly with a few coats, so it was a bit translucent. It allowed some of the orange to peek through, but the gold glitter definitely toned it down. I love it!
I've been considering trying out some other shades of Glitter Blast (like silver) on some of the blue or green varieties of pumpkins just for fun. But it's slightly pricey (I priced it at Hobby Lobby for $7.99) so I'm not sure if I want to use it on perishable pumpkins or not. Maybe I can find some more faux pumpkins for a good price. :-) Anyone have a good source for faux pumpkins?? If so, let me know in the comments pretty please.
