Glitter.

I was more than ready for fall to come this year and even started decorating before the end of August {its true}.
My favorite fall decoration this year has been my glitter pumpkins...they're super cute and were cheap & easy.
And I love cheap & easy.

All you need are a few dollar store pumpkins {and one really cute one from JoAnn's that was on clearance!}, some painter's/masking tape, spray paint, mod podge, glitter, and hairspray.

I spray painted my pumpkins white so they'd have white peeking out instead of orange, making sure to wrap the stem with tape to keep its color. Then I brushed them with mod podge and rolled in my glitter. This left a lot of bare spots, so I took a spoon and shook glitter onto those spots, brushing with more mod podge as needed. Then I let them dry for about 30 minutes before coating with hairspray to keep the glitter on.

Like I said, easy&cheap!
What's your favorite fall decoration this year?!

Does the glitter stay on?

I love how they turned out. Seems easy and an easy way to add some sparkle to the season.

Those are really cute! I love them much more than the scary-looking jack'o lanters. Maybe I need to pull out the glitter!

My fave fall decor is my adorable ceramic owl from Pier One!

Not sure where it came from, but I'm on a crazy owl kick right now. =)
