Fall Shimmer Glitter Pumpkin Tutorial



This pumpkin project is one of those that will last you from September to Thanksgiving!  The colors and glitter shimmer just scream fall and all it takes are some of your favorite puffy paint colors and a steady hand.

What you need for this project:
– Pumpkins (any size will do)
Tulip 3D Fabric Paints (gold metallic, gold glitter, pomegranate, copper, and red glitter)
– Foam Brush
– Plate or palette
– Soft cloth



Start off by squeezing some of the Tulip 3D paint in metallic gold onto the pumpkin and stem. Rub it off with a soft cloth. This will give the entire pumpkin a pretty metallic sheen.



Now make a flower shape on top  of the pumpkin using your Tulip 3D Glitter paint.


In between each "petal" squeeze out another petal


Repeat this over the entire pumpkin. This will create a cool "scalloped" effect on the surface.



For added visual drama, I added vertical and horizontal paint strips inside each petal.



For the red mini pumpkin, I painted it with a coat of copper 3D paint mixed with pomegranate 3D paint. I love adding metallics to add sheen to my paint colors!



I then covered the surface with red glitter 3D paint leaves.  The funny thing is that this pumpkin actually looks like a pomegranate too me (which means my fiance will like it...he's obsessed with pomegranates!)



Here's some photos of them when they dried. They turned out so shimmery!


Don't forget to glitter your stems so they match the rest of the pumpkin!


I love the way the glitter dries!


This is so easy and has an amazing impact on display.  I think the tone on tone effect really works here!

Until next time Swellions!
