Spooky Sparkle Pumpkin - Quick & Easy Pumpkin Decorating

Halloween has always been my favorite holiday.  Every year I try to come up with some new ways to decorate.
I have been on the look-out for some Cinderella Pumpkins, but I have not had much luck.

Here is a little white pumpkin I found and just added some copper ribbon and some burgundy and plum accents.
I think it's too pretty to leave outside...

The next pumpkin has a copper finish with some Spooky Sparkles!
When I taught pre-school I would sprinkle this "magic dust" on the kids to keep the monsters away on Halloween!
It works for 3-year olds.

Take your pumpkin and tape up the stem.
This pizza box came in handy.

Spray the pumpkin lightly with metallic spray paint.
I used Rust-oleum Aged Copper
Sprinkle with Spooky Sparkles
I think this pumpkin looks pretty just as it is, but you can add the copper ribbon.
