We love decorating with pumpkins, and sadly mainly faux pumpkins since Arizona is so warm, the real ones mold too quickly. But the perk of fakes are the ability to decorate them with permanent decor to reuse year after year! This season we decided to jump on the gold trend. And what compliments gold? Glitter of course!

Items needed:

  • Americana Decou-Page (Glue-Sealer-Finish) 2oz - Americana Decou-Page Matte
  • Americana Acrylics 2oz - Antique Gold
  • Glamour Dust 2oz - Glamour Dust Crystal
  • Americana Spray Sealers/Finishes 12oz - Americana Gloss Spray
  • Foam brush
  • Painter's tape
  • Fake pumpkins
  • Water basin
  • Palette

Instructions:

You only need 3 ingredients + your pumpkins and some inexpensive foam brushes to make your own.

That's all there is to it. Really easy.
