Simply paint any pumpkin gold (shhh...faux pumpkins work too!)
Another twist on your solid gold pumpkin is called the Gratitude Pumpkin. Gather with your loved ones and use a sharpie to write words that describe what you are thankful for on dry gold paint. Stickers or kids handprints can be added too!
To achieve glitter polka dots, or other pattern, trace a design on your pumpkin and then follow with gold glitter glue.
For glitter designs with straight edges:
Use metallic gold permanent markers or gold paint pens to draw a design on your pumpkin.
Pumpkin painting is great for all ages and simple enough for even the youngest of kids.
