Last year, I was amazed by the beautiful drip painting pumpkins that The Imagination Tree family made, so it’s not surprising that they were the inspiration behind the Pumpkin decorating that Dimples and I spent time on today when we created Glitter and glue pumpkins!
Rather than paint, the request was made for glitter. So I figured I could substitute PVA glue for the paint, which we dripped and dribbled all over the top of our squash. Once the glue was done, Dimples got to work with a variety of glitters: standard, flitter (whatever that is) and some sparkly shaped glitter. Oh, then she found the glitter glue and added some of that.
Obviously it took a while for the pumpkin to dry out, so its a good thing that we had naps and school runs to fit into our schedule. Once home, stage 2 of the decorating was required. This time, both girls got to work with sticky jewels that I picked up from our 99p store.
They were so pleased with the sticky, sparkly, Princessy, Glitter and glue pumpkins I think they want to make some more tomorrow!
