Happy Monday Jaderbugs! With Halloween right around the corner everyone is looking for pumpkin decorating ideas, including myself. It amazes me every year how many great pumpkin posts are out there so I always try to decorate pumpkins that are different and fun! I had these gilding sheets from Martha Stewart that I never put to use so I figured this would be the best time to do so. I have tried many different gilding techniques and I can honestly say I am in love with these sheets. Check out all of my pumpkins decorating ideas here! If you love glow in the dark then you don’t want to miss this one!
…LET’S GET STARTED

Put gilding adhesive into a bowl
Apply a think coat of adhesive onto your pumpkin
Wait for your adhesive to get sticky (you will feel it) Grab your gilding sheet and apply the silver side directly onto the pumpkin
Take your sheet and simply press it down onto the pumpkin. Notice I am wearing my gloves for this step. You really don’t have to press too hard for this part. I also like to stick the entire sheet down and use my brush to apply a little pressure to the pumpkin.
This is what you will be left with on the pumpkin. It’s like magical shimmer dust. I don’t know about you but this kind of stuff excites me. It reminds me of of those stickers I used as a kid where you would use a popsicle stick to rub it off! Remember?
