Decorating Halloween Pumpkins with Glitter

We’ve been decorating pumpkins to get ready for Halloween. I’ve been trying to give the girls some ideas for decorating pumpkins without having to carve them. Maddie came up with the idea of covering the pumpkins in glue and then covering the glue with glitter.

So we gave it a try :)

Maddie used clear glue and Sammie used white glue.

Maddie drew a design on her pumpkin with glue. I thought it might be easier for Sammie to paint her pumpkin with glue.
Sammie thought it was quite funny to use a paint brush for glue lol

Once the pumpkins were covered with enough glue and Maddie had finished her design, they sprinkled glitter onto the glue-covered pumpkins.

The girls’ glitter pumpkins turned out so pretty :) I love how they sparkle and shine in the light.

Once the glue was dry on the girls’ pumpkins, we set them on the ledge beside the stair, away from curious little Austin hands lol

I have noticed that the glue is starting to peel off of Maddie’s pumpkin. I wonder if maybe we should have put a layer of Mod Podge or more glue over top of her design and glitter? That might have kept the glue from peeling off better. I haven’t noticed this with Sammie’s pumpkin so far, maybe because she painted the whole pumpkin in glue, instead of certain places?

They still look so pretty though :)
