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.
