WHAT YOU NEED:
-Wet and dry towel to prep/clean pumpkin from any dirt
-Metal tacks (purchased mine from Walmart)
-Satin clear Spray Paint
LETS GET STARTED!
Step 1: Pick your pumpkin or pumpkins, any color will work I picked white for my wedding to have more of the Cinderella type feel
Step 2: Clean/prep your pumpkin(s) with a damp towel, and make sure you dry it completely
Step 3: Get on your computer and pick a font you like and pick your letter(s) you would like to use make sure you use a big enough font (this is how large your letter will be on your pumpkin) and print the letters out
Step 4: Cut the letter out so its on a smaller square so you dont have to fuss with the 8x10 piece of paper on your pumpkin
Step 5: Tape your square piece of paper with your letter on it in the center of your pumpkin. Make sure you pick the best side of your pumpkin!
Step 6: Push your tacks into the letter. Overlapping the tacks alittle gives you the best turn out!
Step 7: Once you have your completed letter with tacks on the paper. Un-tape the piece if paper and slowly pull/peel the paper from underneath the tacks. (YOU DO NOT NEED TO REMOVE YOUR ALREADY PLACED TACKS! YOU ARE PEELING THE PAPER AWAY FROM THE TACKS!!) Patience is key!!!
Step 8: Take your pumpkin to a well ventilated area
Step 9: Spray the top of your pumpkin with satin clear spray paint lightly, short back and forth strokes
Step 10: Sprinkle your glitter lightly on the top of the pumpkin
Step 11: Once you have the amount of glitter that satisfies your taste spray a final coat of spray paint on top to seal that glitter down & let dry!
