Glitter and Glam Pumpkins | Fall DIY

Last year we did the framed button candy canes… but this year we outdid ourselves with our Glitter and Glam Fall Pumpkins.

I went with small white pumpkins for my project, because I have limited space in my bedroom/writing studio, but wanted to have some fun fall decor ‘sprinkled’ around my room.

We picked out our pumpkins at a local nursery, but they currently have them at Harris Teeter and more than likely at the garden center in your local hardware store.

For decor we wanted to go glam, but you don’t have to break the bank to accomplish your goal.
