.:Tutorial Tuesday - Decorative Pumpkin:.

My husband's work is having a pumpkin decorating contest, so naturally he left it up to me! I thought it turned out pretty cute!

What you need:
- pumpkin
- spray paint
- masking tape
- glitter spray (optional)
- fall picks (optional)
- ribbon

First, I used the masking tape to tape down my design on the pumpkin. It seems tedious, but it really didn't take me long. Make sure you wipe down your pumpkin before you start!

Spray paint your pumpkin!

Let the paint dry, and then carefully peel up your tape.

Spray with glitter spray.

Attach your picks and ribbon and you are done!

I've heard of just painting the pumpkin and using something to scrape your design off, too, so maybe you'd rather try that option? Or you could just paint it and then paint another design on it! There are lots of cute white pumpkins out there right now, I may have to give that a try!
