The day Martha Stewart glitter entered our lives. This stuff is glorious, fine, and beautiful to look at. However, it has now become know as the "herpes of crafting" because it is impossible to clean up. But it sure is pretty.
These are real pumpkins, painted with a mixture of elmer's glue and water, then showered with glitter. They will last through Thanksgiving for sure.
Artificial pumpkins may be used as well. Be sure to cover the pumpkin thoroughly with the glue wash, and having a stem makes it easy to maneuver the pumpkin around as you shower it with glitter.
