mystical constellations craft pumpkin

This mystical celestial pumpkin is the perfect addition to your spooky Halloween decor. Just start with a black pumpkin (or you can paint one black!) and have fun with glow-in-the-dark paint.
Step 1

Click here to download and print the template for constellations. Set aside for now.

Step 2

Brush the entire pumpkin with purple glitter paint. Let dry. If you want more purple glitter to show, add additional coats.

Step 3

Remove the writing cap from your crystal glitter writer and attach it to the glow-in-the-dark paint bottle. Make dots on the pumpkin to draw the constellations with the writer. Let the paint dry.
TIP: Wait until after Step 4 to add more random stars.

Step 4

Now, remove the writer cap and rinse it completely. Attach it back to the crystal glitter writer bottle and squeeze a little out onto your template to make sure only the glitter paint is coming out of the tip and some residual glow paint; then connect the lines on the constellations according to the template. Let dry.

Step 5

Add more glow-in-the-dark stars to the pumpkin with the writer cap or use a pencil tip dipped in paint for small stars and the eraser side for larger stars. Let dry.
TIP: Let the glow-in-the-dark paint "charge" in bright light for a while so it will glow!
