DIY: Neon Glitter Pumpkins

     Glitter, neon, and glow in the dark: yes, yes & YES! Ready for the trendiest pumpkins on the block? Here's what you need:

The paint, glitter & paint brushes were purchased at JoAnn Fabrics. Psst! If you have the Entertainment card/book/app, there are 2 coupons: 1 for 40% off any regular-price item & 1 for 10% off your entire order. All of the Halloween merchandise is currently 70% off! Also, Friends & Family 25% off sale is Nov. 2-4!

First coat your pumpkin with your color of choice. (The paint is tricky to adhere to pumpkins so coat as thick as you like.) I recommend 2-3 coats with a dabbing rather than brushing motion.

Here's the good part! Don't worry if your paint does not appear even because the glitter will perfect the look of your work! Simply sprinkle glitter over the pumpkin. Dabbing glitter on the underside & spreading with your fingers works wonders.

Voila! After playing around with the first pumpkin, it's easy to create more, & more & more!

The finished pumpkin patch:

The fun comes in getting creative & playing with the paints: splatter paints & throw that glitter! ;)
