Glitter Pumpkins

Last but not least, glitter pumpkins! If you’ve got a house full of kids who aren’t quite ready to see evil faced Jack O'lanterns, then cover your pumpkins with different shades of glitter. Keep the Halloween spirit alive with black, orange, and gold glitter. Place your pumpkins on your front porch or put them in the centerpiece on your dining table. You can even use them for Thanksgiving decor.
