There are no pictures of me in this post because I am covered in glitter spray paint. You know what requires several washings to remove from your skin? Glitter spray paint. I have a hot date with a body scrub and some steel wool.
I used the glitter spray paint on some fake pumpkins I have. I came across the stuff when I was in line waiting to buy some other items – an impulse purchase for sure. But then I ran with the whole glitter sparkle pumpkin thing. I sprayed one silver, one gold, and one black. My self-glittering happened when I didn’t anticipate the wind. I sprayed the pumpkins outside and apparently there were rogue bits of glitter that flew out of the paint and onto my person. But, Annie says I look like a sparkly princess so I guess it’s not a total loss.
I made this pumpkin with black glitter spray paint and gold house numbers I bought at Home Depot.
This pumpkin used gold glitter spray paint, two different sizes of sequins, and sequin pins.
And this one was just silver glitter spray paint and sticky-backed fake gemstones.
I also got my dad to come over last week to help me with a light-up pumpkin. We cut the bottom off of a craft pumpkin, then my dad drilled forty holes around the pumpkin at random.
I took a string of Christmas lights and poked them through the holes.
I didn’t test the lights until AFTER I’d pushed them into the pumpkin. That would have sucked if the strand hadn’t worked. Annie was amazed by the pumpkin.
I put all my fancy pumpkins together, along with the rhinestone skull I got for 50% off at Michael’s and my fake flowers with spiders and webs (“ew Mama, the flowers got spiders“).
Not pictured: The pumpkins on my porch (I have…some) or the mini pumpkin and squash collection that is growing in my dining room (I have…many). I am addicted to decorative gourds. I’m going to the pumpkin patch (again) tomorrow (for reals).
