The combination of a 3 year old, glitter, and decoupaging medium can only be reasonably described as lethal. So we have no progress pictures.
Here are our glitter pumpkins. The 3-D one is a gourd that we grew last year and found well dried-out in the garage this fall. The 2-D pumpkin was purchased for a dollar at a craft store. This is a good outdoor project.

In case you are wondering, decoupaging medium does eventually come out of hair.

Warning....glitter should only be used outdoors or in the garage. Glitter tends to bond to table tops, counters and floors...especially floors. So, if you do not want your house to sparkle in the sunlight forever, move the project elsewhere. Oh, just putting down drop cloths doesn't do the trick either. The glitter will migrate everywhere.

I had a young daughter once myself.  Cheesy
