Hand Print Pumpkins

Every year during General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints all the girl's and kiddos in my husbands family get together to eat dinner and decorate pumpkins. My oldest daughter is now old enough to pretty much decorate her own pumpkin with some help with glue. Her first Halloween she was six months old and obviously wasn't old enough to decorate a pumpkin, but I still wanted to get her involved. That's when I came up with hand print pumpkins. Here's a picture of her in 2008.

Are you dying over that face? I know I'm her mom, but seriously how cute is she!
Here she is with her pumpkin she decorated this year.

This year my little one is 17 months old and couldn't decorate her own pumpkin so I decided to do both of my girls hand prints. It really is so easy and I wouldn't normally explain, except I have a trick to not make a mess with the glitter!


First trace hands onto pumpkin.

Glitter can be extremely messy and a pain in the butt to use. It gets everywhere and you can never get rid of it! So here's the trick to mess free glitter. Mix the glitter in your clear drying craft glue and apply to pumpkin or any other project.

Add rhinestones and ribbon and your done!

Enjoy!

Love it! So crafty and cute. Do the sparkles get ruined in the rain, or do you keep the pumpkin indoors?
