Whether you are trying to dress up your doorstep, or add a bit of glam to your kitchen table, these glittery pumpkins are sure to do the trick. One of the benefits of these glam pumpkins, versus the traditional carved pumpkin, are they last much longer. A pumpkin can last 8-12 weeks, while a carved pumpkin will only last 5-10 days. Add a dash of sparkle to your home, because you can never have too much glitter!
