Instead of buying gourds to accent your holiday décor, buy small pumpkins; they'll last longer. Use a small paint brush to apply a coat of white craft glue over the entire surface. Grab the stem and hold the pumpkin over a paper plate or piece of newspaper as you sprinkle colorful glitter over the glue then set it down and let it dry for about an hour. Shake off the excess glitter, paint the stem with brown acrylic paint and let it dry.
