Sparkly Carve-Free Pumpkin

This pumpkin is perfect for intermediate decorators, 

and will dazzle all the ghosts and ghouls in your neighborhood!

Hi, Malty friends!!! 🤗

Welcome to Level 2 of Malty's carve-free pumpkin series! If your little one is still too little to be carving gourds, but has graduated from our Level 1 Pom-Pom Pumpkin, this sparkly craft will delight and dazzle them. 

Inspired by the signature colors of 

Malty the Blue Tiger, this pumpkin uses a simple paint-on glue technique to get its dripping glitter look. 

Here's how to get started—don't forget to send us snapshots of your sparkly pumpkin by tagging @MaltyTheBlueTiger on Instagram! 📸

Hugs and roars, 

Your Malty Friends 💙

Step 1

Start with a black pumpkin. 

You can paint a real pumpkin, or a craft gourd!

(We used this pumpkin from Michael's! 😊)

Step 2

Ask your child to use a foam brush to paint glue (we used Mod Podge!) onto the top of the pumpkin.

Don't worry if it drips down the sides—that'll make it look extra spooky!

Step 3

Have your little one sprinkle blue and silver glitter onto the pumpkin in layers. Allow to dry, then shake off the excess into the trash. 


Go back to basics with this adorable Pom-Pom Pumpkin!
