Hey everyone! Since the Halloween and pumpkin season is upon us, I thought I’d show you how to dress up a plain black pumpkin with some super sparkle! You know you want to!!! All this project takes is glue & various colors of glitter to make a sparkletastic pumpkin in no time!
Watch the project below via the Darby Smart app! I’m a part of the #DarbyStars program where I share video projects on the Darby Smart app. You can download the app from the app store on your phone.

What you need for this project:
– Black pumpkin (mine was faux and from Target)
– Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue
– Tulip Fashion Glitters in a rainbow of colors
– Small paintbrush (For moving glue drips)
– Large bristle brush (for sweeping away excess glitter)
Squeeze a big glob of glue on top of the pumpkin and spread it out with an old paintbrush. You will need to guide the drips a little at first.
Before you know it, you’re pumpkin will look awesome like this and ready for the glittery goodness!
Grab your glitters and start shaking them over top to cover all your glue!
Tilt your pumpkin up to get the drips on the side!
After an intense glittering, session, your pumpkin will look like this!
Let your pumpkin dry, then take a large bristle brush and sweep off all the excess glitter! Also, you may notice that you have a few dried glue clupms here or there. You can use your scissors to help “define” your dried glue drips. You’ll also be able to just peel off any dried glue smudges!
And here’s the finished pumpkin! Doesn’t it look fun?
Here’s a look at the back. The glue sagged a little bit after the glitter was applied but I still think it looks super cool!
And a view from the top!
Do you think you’ll be trying out this fun pumpkin!!!! I love how it turned out!
And here’s a finished graphic for happy pinning and sharing on your fave social media site! Happy glittering everyone!
