How to make your Halloween decorations
Step 1: Choose your preferred shade of metallic craft paint. We love golds and bronzes for this time of year, but silvery tones will also work well.
Step 2: Protect your workspace with newspaper, and cover the entire pumpkin with metallic paint, either by spraying or using a brush. You might need two coats. Leave to dry.
Step 3: Use dressmaking pins to secure some sequins in your preferred design to add more glitz.
Step 4: For extra sparkle, glue on or dust over a little glitter (make sure it’s the eco-friendly, biodegradable variety, like EcoStardust).
