Every year I love to decorate my pumpkins in a unique way that makes them even more fun to decorate with. Last year I monogrammed my pumpkin, and the year before I made disco pumpkins, so I definitely had to come up with something great this year! I'm not sure quite how I came up with the idea, but last week I decided that this year I was going to paint princess pumpkins because that is very me. I love how they turned out, super pretty, sparkly, and girly - just what I wanted! We have less than a week until Halloween and this is a super easy way to jazz up your pumpkins, not including drying time this took me under an hour, and looks absolutely adorable!
-2 mini pumpkins
-1 small white pumpkin
-Pale pink paint
-Wash and completely dry off your pumpkins.
-Paint one mini pumpkin pale pink. Paint the top of the pumpkin and allow to dry, flip over and paint the bottom of the pumpkin, allow to dry.
-Mix white and pink paint to get a paler pink paint. Paint the other mini pumpkin this shade of pink. Follow the previous instructions for how to paint.
-Coat the top third of the white pumpkin with Mod Podge. To give the edges of the Mod Podge an uneven look brush it down the pumpkin.
-Pour glitter over the Mod Podge, use a lighter hand as you go down the pumpkin to taper the glitter.
-Allow to dry.
-When completely dry shake off remaining glitter (I did this in my sink because I thought that was the neatest way to do it). Then run a dry paint sponge over the glitter to help remove any excess.
