Glitzy Pumpkin Love

The many amazing pumpkin varieties in blog land and on Pinterest is amazing.  I love autumn and pumpkins.  I decided to give some of these fabulous ideas a try.  
This sweet pumpkin was only $1 at the Dollar Tree.
 I wanted to make it very sparkly and fun.  I purchased some Martha Stewart glitter paint and went right to work.
 I did not take long to see that this was not a full coverage paint and this baby would need a little more help to become a sparkly pumpkin.

 I had this wonderful Rustoleum spray paint already and decided to use that as the base coat.   It worked beautifully.  I then did a couple of layers with the Martha Stewart Glitter paint.
 Here it is all sparkly and glittery.
 These chip board letters were in my stash and I decided to add them to the lovely pumpkin.  I don't have a picture right now but I also added a small black crow for a finishing touch.
