How I Made an Unlikely Valentine's Day Decoration
So I had kept these white pumpkins that I had used in November for my White Thanksgiving Centerpiece. I thought about making a snowman or something.
Instead, I decided to glitterize them for Valentine's day!
I used glitter, mod podge, and white craft paint.
1
To make sure I had enough pink glitter, I mixed two different colors of pink together. I tried just a tiny bit at first to see if I liked it.
2
I mixed fairly equal parts with my finger.
3
I used a baker's wire rack to sit the wet pumpkin on after painting it with Mod Podge, and put a piece of paper underneath to catch the extra glitter.
4
I decided to try this ombre effect by sprinkling glitter straight from the top, and I like this pumpkin better than the 100% glitter one. Do you?
5
The yellowing pumpkin would look better white, so I painted it with craft paint.
6
When it was mostly dry, I decided to add the glitter without the mod podge. It was wet on top, and I loved how the glitter looked in the creases.
7
After they dried completely, I used them all as part of my Valentine decor. Who would have thought that pumpkins could be Valentine's Day decor?!
