This is the last post that is solely focused on pumpkins this year. I promise. I’ve had a good, long run with the pumpkin re-dos this fall.

The last few that I did were taking my real ones and giving them a light shot of metallic spray paint so that they would transition from Halloween into Thanksgiving. Those pumpkins? I made them frosty pumpkins.
I always feel like I’m in a bit of a decorating limbo from the Friday after Thanksgiving until the day in early December when Handsome Hubby first has a chance to get my Christmas boxes down from the rafters.
So here’s what I do to those warm, shimmery metallic pumpkins…
I frost them.
With these guys sitting around it looks like winter is almost here. The perfect thing while waiting for the Christmas season to begin.
Here’s how to do it.
You’ll need epsom salt, coarse glitter, fine iridescent glitter, craft glue and spray adhesive.
Remember, salt melts when it gets wet, so don’t leave these where they can get wet.
This one was here just long enough for the picture, because of the sprinklers. Move it to a covered area or keep it indoors.
