1. Start by propping up or holding your gourd and applying glue to one end of it. I propped my gourds up on a plant stand, because I needed to take pictures and craft.
Now, if you want a really crisp glitter line, I would recommend taping a line around your gourd before applying the adhesive. I wan’t that picky, I wanted them to look like they’d been dipped in glitter so I didn’t use tape.
2. Hold your gourd over a large piece of paper or box and pour glitter over the adhesived end.
3. Let dry!
4. These are only temporary decorations for me, but if you want to last a long time, I would recommend using fake pumpkins and giving them a second coat of adhesive over the glitter to seal it.
I am loving having an actual porch to decorate instead of just a doorway! You will definitely be seeing a lot more “porch projects”!!
Also, if you’re wondering about the bandaid on my thumb in some of these photos- I had accidentally stabbed my thumb with a craft knife earlier in the day… Sigh. The craft life is rough.
Do you have a porch to decorate?
