glittered cat

Is it a pumpkin or is it a cat? Either way, this plaster cutie’s got style (and glitter!) to spare! Perk up your fall décor – DIY your own glittered cat pumpkin. Pumpkin cat? You know what we mean (and you know you need one) so let us show you how very easy it is to make!
Step 1
First, squirt a puddle of black paint onto your paper plate (or palette paper). Then, use your brush to paint the entire plaster pumpkin cat head. Let it dry, then touch up any areas that might need a little extra paint.
Step 2

Next, use a smaller brush to paint the insides of the pumpkin cat’s eyes and mouth with Pumpkin paint. Let this paint dry completely, too.

TIP: Want to speed up your dry time? A hair dryer is just the thing.


Step 3
Now, dry brush the pumpkin cat with white paint. To do this, touch a large, dry paintbrush onto a bit of white paint, then lightly drag your brush over the black-painted areas to add white lines and marks that give your pumpkin cat a worn look. Use the white paint to highlight the nose, whiskers and ears, too.
Step 4
Almost done! Once all your paint is dry, paint a layer of Mod Podge® over the orange areas on your pumpkin cat’s eyes and mouth. While the Mod Podge® is still wet, sprinkle these areas with metallic orange glitter to add a shiny accent. Shake off the excess glitter and let the head dry once more. Spooky!
