I picked up a lighted pumpkin at a garage sale that had seen better days! Take a look at the before.
The orange color was quickly fading and chipping away. This poor guy was probably headed for the dump. A little bit of black spray paint, white school glue and some Martha Steward Onyx glitter.....
First I unscrewed the light unit from the bottom of the pumpkin and set it aside. Take your pumpkin shell outside and give it a couple coats of black spray paint, don't forget the inside!
Section by section, brush on plain old white school glue then glitter. Screw the light unit back on and voila!
In building my decor display I had a vintage Halloween image I wanted to frame and add. I went into the frame stash and pulled out this.
I loved the detail of the frame, but hated the color. Nothing a little spray paint can't fix!
The bird is a Martha Stewart Crafts silhouette package that's out for the holiday. I'm still building the display so I will share more as I go. Take another look at those worn out decorations before you pitch them! There isn't much spray paint or glitter can't fix!
