  2. Faux or real pumpkins (craft pumpkins shown)
  3. Spray paints in metallic colors and black
  4. Glitter
  5. Ribbon (optional)

  1. Set your pumpkins out on newspaper, giving enough space between them in case of over-spray.

  2. Spray paint your pumpkin.
  3. Sprinkle glitter all over the pumpkin immediately after you're done spray painting while it is still wet to ensure your glitter will adhere. (Tip: You might want to do larger pumpkins in half sections).
