DIY Glitter Quote Pumpkin

DIY Glitter Quote Pumpkin.

I’m all about finding new ways to decorate pumpkins which don’t involve waving around sharp objects! So this week I thought, Why not get a bit of glitter into the mix?

You will need:

  • Pumpkin
  • Glitter
  • PVA Glue
  • Paint Brush
  • Vinyl
  • Craft Knife or Cricut Explore.

Step One:

Use your Cricut Explore to cut out the quote of your choice onto vinyl to make a stencil. If you haven’t got a Cricut, you could always use a craft knife to cut out a template, just print a quote off and cut it into vinyl.

Step Two:

Stick your vinyl template onto your pumpkin, don’t be afraid to cut it so that it molds better to the pumpkins awkward shape.

Make sure that the vinyl is well stuck around all of the letters.

Step Three:

Mix up a thick glitter and PVA paste.

Paint the glitter paste onto the pumpkin carefully, making sure all of the letters are well covered.

Step Four:

Leave your glitter to dry as it’s very thick, make sure you leave it long enough.

Once dry, gently peel away the vinyl to reveal the glitter quote underneath. Use a cotton bud to tidy up any stray glitter.
