- A pumpkin
- Paint, I used Acryllic Paint and found that it held on fairly well
- Spray Adhesive, or a glue stick
- A picture of a Maple Leaf
Using acrylic paint, I used white, start to paint your pumpkin. This is the longest part of the process, as it’s best to paint the pumpkin in sections.
I started painting from the top down, and then turned the pumpkin on it’s side to paint the bottom sections.
Next using a picture of a maple leaf as my guide I drew a leaf using a sharpie.
Then I used the spray glue (following the instructions on the can) to spray inside the traced leaf.
I then quickly dropped the glitter onto the glue before it dried. Tip: Put a plate under the pumpkin to collect any excess glitter.
Next I took black acrylic paint and outlined the leaf, and then painted the stem black.
As a fun finishing touch I took the excess glitter and sprinkled it over the top of the pumpkin around the stem.
And this is the finished product! And as always, feel free to tie an orange or
black ribbon around the stem.
