  • Pumpkin
  • Brilliant Gold Spray Paint
  • Spray Adhesive
  • Martha Stewart Fine Gold Glitter
  • Stencils of your choice
  • Contrast Color Spray Paint of your choice.  We used Matte Black.


  • Place pumpkin on newspaper, cardboard, or other surface that you wouldn't mind getting paint on.
  • Cover pumpkins in gold spray paint.  Get at least 12" away when spraying and keep the coats thin.  Allow to dry.
  • Place your stencil onto the pumpkin and tape down the edges gently with painters tape.  Depending on your spray paint, the tape may or may not remove the paint also, so test it first on the back or underside.  If paint comes up, you may need to allow it to dry, or you can wear gloves and hold the stencil.
  • Spray pumpkin stem with spray adhesive and immediately shake gold glitter onto stem until covered.
  • Allow all paint and adhesive to dry, then shake/blow off extra glitter from stem.
