Supplies:
Munchkin pumpkins
Paper Towels  (I recommend Viva because they are strong)
Mod Podge
Neon Glitter

I recommend using a quality paper towel such as Viva Vantage because with glue and glitter it can get a little messy.  I used Viva paper towels and it was a quick 1 minute cleanup.     Viva Brand offers a choice of two types of everyday towels  (Viva and Viva Vantage) that work like cloth to stand up to any cleaning or craft job.  Viva Towels are super soft and smooth (they feel like a undershirt) so they are perfect for gentle craft applications such as putting glue on pumpkins.  Viva Vantage is great for scrubbing off grime in the kitchen, but they’re also great for gentle arts and crafts jobs too.  They’re a must have in my craft cabinet!

I got this 12 pack of neon glitter on Amazon for $12.   The glitter comes in bright colors and even though the bottles are little they last a while.

How to:

Put a little Mod Podge on your paper towel and spread on your pumpkin.  I recommend placing the pumpkin on a paper towel because once you start sprinkling glitter it’s going to get messy.

Then very gently (remember a little goes a long way) sprinkle your glitter all over your pumpkin.

I used a bunch of colors for my pumpkins.   I was surprised by how bright the glitter colors were, including the yellow one.

Because glitter is expensive and I don’t like wasting things,  once I was finished I picked up all the paper towels that had excess glitter on them and used a funnel to add them back to their jars.    Aren’t you glad you used paper towels for this?
