instructions

Other Supplies

  • Medium craft pumpkin
  • Foam brush

Instructions

  1. Visually divide the pumpkin into 3 sections to create an ombre effect.  Paint the top third (section nearest to the stem) with Light Lavender. Paint the middle third section with Lavender, and paint the bottom third section with Eggplant. Let paint dry.
  2. Apply Purple Glitterfic with the foam brush.
    • TIP: Because the pumpkin is standing upright, it is probably better to apply thinner coats of Glitterfic instead of one heavy application allowing each coat to dry before applying the next.
  3. Apply Silver Glitterific to the pumpkin stem. Let dry.
