Instructions

1. Stretch fishnet tights over the pumpkin so the waist opening is at the top.  Hot glue the waist band around the stem of the pumpkin.  (Gather as you go and wear Hot Glue Finger Caps for protection)

2. Trace the letter onto a piece of Halloween themed scrapbook paper.  Cut out the design.  Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the back of the paper and position onto the letter.  Smooth any air bubbles with your finger.  Wait 15 min and top-coat with a layer of Mod Podge.

3. Apply Mod Podge around the edges of the letter, sprinkle the chunky glitter into the glue.  Let the glitter sprinkle onto the letter and the edges.

4. Hot glue the letter to the center of the pumpkin.


PROJECT TIP: When glittering with Mod Podge, do it over a file folder so you can easily filter the glitter back into the jar.
