While Halloween isn’t my favorite holiday, I do enjoy decorating a pumpkin or two. However, the fact is it isn’t really advisable that I try carve a pumpkin myself. The reason being I almost took of my thumb in the 3rd grade trying to carve, so I typically resort to painting them. Last year I stumbled upon this disco pumpkin on Pinterest and was instantly charmed by the idea. I decided to take the idea one step further and use the ombre trend to decorate my pumpkin this year. Here is what I did…
- A pumpkin (I suggest a small to medium sized one)
- Adhesive spray
- Painter’s tape (not pictured)
- Three colors of any color glitter you want
- Newspaper or some other paper to cover your work space
Spray the adhesive onto the top section of the pumpkin. It is best to hold the spray about 6 inches away from the surface of the pumpkin, and spray in a continuous motion until the entire section is covered.
Cover the top section with the lightest of the three colors of glitter. Repeat this step on the bottom section using the darkest color of glitter. Remove the tape and spray the middle section with the adhesive spray, making sure to have a higher concentration of the middle shade of glitter in the middle of the center section. Using the lightest color of glitter lightly sprinkle the top of the middle section, blending the color with that of the middle color. Repeat this step for the bottom section of the pumpkin.
