Glittery Stacked Pumpkins

I’ve been wrestling with my boring mantle for weeks. It just isn’t the fall splendor that I’m looking for. I found these stacked pumpkins at a craft fair. I thought they were perfect until I got them home and realized they were way too bright-orange for my décor. The putty colored pot didn’t do a thing for them either. So, I decided to modify a bit. Check it out…




I brushed each pumkin with Mod Podge. You could easily use watered-down white glue, but I like Mod Podge because it’s already the perfect consistency for brushing.


Next I sprinkled it with glitter. I love Martha Stewart glitters! They come in the coolest colors and are super-fine texture. This color is Fire Opal, the stem is Peridot.


Voila! The finished product is exactly what I wanted. I spray painted the pot using Krylon Flat Black Indoor/Outdoor #51602.

I’ll show it to you on my mantle in the next day or so. Be sure to check back!
