DIY: Glitter the Pumpkins

Ok, I confess...I have an unnatural affection for Martha Stewart's glitter collection.
There's just so many colors!

Instead of carving pumpkins this year, I thought I would use my two favorite craft tools, spray paint and glitter, to make a little decor in the meantime.
Boom.

I'm sure you can already tell how the craftiness ensued without having a full on DIY instruction.
But just in case -
1. Spray paint pumpkin with a shiny, copper spray paint. This helps you not using so much glitter.
2. Glue everywhere. I used modge podge and a sponge paint brush.
3. BRING ON THE GLITTER!
4. Enjoy vacuuming said glitter until after Thanksgiving. Which is precisely the same date my pumpkin will finish his run as my decoration.

I love this idea, although you are right...the vacuum is your new best friend after all that glitter.
