that's really CUTE! DD's birthday is the 16th so last year we did a craft party at Michaels and used mod podge to attach little squares of tissue paper to foam pumpkins, they're REALLLLLY cute too, you could do that with a real pumpkin, a bit less messy than the glitter! might even find glittery tissue  OR put a little on under the mod podge that dries clear

You can mix the gltter in the Mod Podge and paint it on.  Also, did you know you can make your own "mod podge" by mixing white glue and water?  WAY cheaper!

Quoting Marz31:
