Fall is the time of year when the days get shorter, the weather gets cooler and the colors shift from vibrant to darker earth tones. But your color palette doesn't have to tone down completely ... you can brighten up your DIY fall decor with glitter! Sparkling gold glitter ... and pumpkins ... the perfect combo for fall in our opinion. And so easy to DIY with Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue® and faux pumpkins you can pick up at the discount store. Read on for this simple tutorial to up your decor game this season! 

What you need:

Aleene's Original Tacky Glue

- Faux pumpkins in assorted sizes

- Glitter in desired color and size

- Paintbrush

- Disposable surface cover

Make sure your pumpkins are clean and free of any dust before getting started. Cover your work surface with a protective plastic table cover since you'll be working with glitter and glue, and it can get a bit messy.

For a solid coverage glitter pumpkin, squeeze some Tacky Glue onto the pumpkin and use a paintbrush to smooth the glue evenly over the pumpkin, making sure all areas are covered with glue.

While glue is still wet, pour glitter over entire pumpkin and shake off excess. Let dry. Tip: shaking off excess glitter over something like a piece of scratch paper makes it easy to gather and pour back into your container.

To create a word like "Fall" on your pumpkin, squeeze the glue directly from the bottle onto the pumpkin. Tip: you can first use a pencil to write out your word then tracing with glue if you aren't comfortable winging it. If you do mess up, Tacky Glue wipes away easily with a damp cloth and you can start over.

While the glue is still wet, sprinkle glitter over the top until all of the glue is covered. Shake off excess glitter and let dry.
