Super Easy Glitter Pumpkin

3 Materials
15 Minutes
This glitter pumpkin is inexpensive and super easy to make. Great for kids, girls night out, party favors, etc.

You'll need:
  • Glass Jar (Dollar Tree or Amazon)
  • Pledge Floor Care Finish (Walmart or Amazon)
  • Q-tips (Walmart or Dollar Tree or Amazon)
  • Orange Glitter (Hobby Lobby or Amazon)
  • Brown Acrylic Paint (Walmart or Amazon)
  • Fake leaves (Dollar Tree or Amazon) Cork (Michaels or Amazon)
  • Flicker Candle (Dollar Tree or Amazon) - optional Hot Glue Gun

Pour the Pledge into the glass jar.

Put the lid on and swirl the Pledge all over the glass. (I put wax paper under the lid to keep the lid dry.)
Pour the extra Pledge back into the jar.
Use the q-tips to get rid of any bubbles.
Pour glitter into the glass jar.
Put the lid on, and shake the glitter all over the jar. (I put wax paper under the lid.)
Use brown acrylic paint to paint the lid. I added a little metallic copper acrylic paint to the brown to give it a little extra shimmer. Let dry completely.
Glue on your fake leaves (or you could use real ones), and cork (you wouldn't have to buy a cork - you could use one from bottle.) onto the lid.
Optional - Add a flicker candle.
That's it, super easy and fun. If you make one, I'd love to see it. Just simply add a photo to the comments section below. Happy Fall Y'all!
