Glitter No Carve Halloween Pumpkin

You will need:
A pumpkin
Glue of some sort
Hi-Gloss lacquer
I was trying to think of some cute pumpkin crafts that wouldn't involve any carving (rawr I hate carving!), and I came up with this little idea!
The pumpkin is actually one of the fake ones you can buy from Michaels that you can carve (only I didn't!), but of course this would work just as well with a real pumpkin! :)
Simply use any type of glue you have, make the shape of a web, and coat with glitter. After the glue dries, use a clean, dry paintbrush to brush in the holes between the lines because the glitter will still be stuck in areas where there isn't any glue, and this will get that excess glitter off of your pumpkin!
Next, spray the entire pumpkin with a layer of hi-gloss lacquer like this one:
This will keep the glitter from falling off everywhere, which is especially useful for if you are decorating a fake pumpkin that you plan to keep for future years!
For the spider, I grabbed the little guy already glittered from Michaels for about $2, but you could definitely make your own spider, or find a spider and glitter it using a layer of mod podge and then glitter, following by the lacquer again to seal it.
Happy Halloween everyone!!
