Have you started your fall decorating yet? I just started the process of getting some pumpkins out and adding a few little touches of fall to my home. I knew the new Glitter Blast spray paint from Krylon would look awesome on some Dollar Tree Styrofoam pumpkins. Then I went a step further and added a small scrapbook brad to make them place card holders. What a perfect personalized accent to your fall entertaining or Thanksgiving table.

Tea light candles
Brad or Thumbtack
I purchased two different size pumpkins from Dollar Tree. I used my hole saw bit (the size of the tea light candles) attached to my cordless drill to make a hole in the top of the mini pumpkins. Using a knife I scraped out the excess Styrofoam to create a nice even hole for the tea light to fit in. Then I spray primed the pumpkins and then used the Glitter Blast spray all over them. I let them dry and then I sprayed a clear coat over the top of them. You can seriously rub your hand all over it now and not a sparkle will come off.
Next I printed out the guest’s name on cardstock and cut it to size. Then I stuck a scrapbook brad or thumbtack into the pumpkin to hold it in place.
I also used the larger pumpkin with a votive (drilling with the same hole saw bit) thinking it would make a nice fall centerpiece.
Look at the depth of color in this. It has lots of golds, orange and brown flecks in it. So rich and beautiful!
