What to do with pumpkins too small to carve? Glitter them!


colored glitter
spray adhesive
small paintbrush
brown craft paint
roll of craft paper


Put down a layer of newspaper topped with a sheet of craft paper to protect the work surface. Then select pumpkins of various sizes and colors, and decide which ones will receive which color glitter.

Spray the top and middle portion of a pumpkin with spray adhesive. While the glue is still wet, use a spoon to sprinkle glitter over the sticky surface of the pumpkin. Allow to dry.

*Tip* Unless you want to glitter the stem, try not to spray it with adhesive. Cover it with painter’s tape if necessary.

Pick up the pumpkin and shake off any glitter that didn’t fully adhere. Set the pumpkin aside and fold the craft paper to funnel the excess glitter back into its original container.
