The holidays are just around the corner. One of my favorite things about this time of year is gathering with family around the table for good food and conversation. Dress up your table and create a show stopping Gold Glitter Pumpkin Vase centerpiece using DecoArt® Holographic Illusions™ now available at Hobby Lobby and JOANN's.

This is not your typical glitter paint. DecoArt® Holographic Illusions™ give projects the magic of a true holographic glitter paint with a light-refracting rainbow of bold color. The holographic glitter flakes create a sparkle and shine that will add a pop to any creative project.

Keep reading for a step-by-step tutorial or watch the video below to see how to make this fun project!

Items needed:

  • Americana Acrylics 2oz - Antique Gold
  • DecoArt Holographic Illusions 2oz - Magic Gold
  • Faux pumpkin
  • Craft knife
  • Paintbrushes
  • Floral foam
  • Faux flowers


First, use a craft knife to carve off the top of the faux pumpkin.

Next, paint a base coat of Antique Gold on the bottom half of the pumpkin. You will need to paint 2-3 coats and let them dry completely.

Use a flat brush to apply the Holographic Illusions™ Magic Gold starting at the top of the gold paint. I decided to create a subtle ombre effect by applying a thicker coat up around the top and then lightly brushing it down towards the bottom.  Apply 2 coats to get the desired look.
