To make magic pumpkins, you will need:

  • pumpkins (as many as you like – it’s fun to decorate different sizes and shapes of squash too)
  • newspaper/messy mat to protect your table/floor
  • gold paint
  • a straw (optional)
  • gold glitter (we love the really fine stuff that’s like sparkly dust)

How to make magic pumpkins:

  1. Lay out your newspaper/messy mat and place your pumpkins on top.
  2. Spill, splodge, splatter or brush on some gold paint.  We used a straw to blow the paint across the pumpkin’s surface and give a drippy effect near the stalk.
  3. Liberally sprinkle with glitter dust!
  4. Leave to dry overnight.
  5. Use to decorate your home or doorstep.  What could be simpler than that..?
