DIY Glitter Gourds

Hello friends! I'm finally back and trying to get into the swing of things again. Why is it that a person needs at least 2 days to adjust back to normal life after a little holiday, almost always? It's so difficult! We had a really wonderful time in Austin and the wedding we attended was absolutely beautiful. Seeing much of our extended family again was such a treat for us and all in all, it was a great one. 

Today I'm here with a easy peasy DIY. This is an old one for me, something I did several years ago. I think these green gourds are the coolest things and I love their wacky, chubby shapes and curling stems. I like to do a bit of texturing and embellishing so to speak, so here is a little DIY for adding some fall flavor to your dining table centerpiece.
Really there's no need for explanation but here goes anyway ...
* gourds themselves, leftover Elmer's kid's glue, fine glitter, paint brush, and rubber spiders for creepy charm. 
* lay paper or in my case, leftover plastic tablecloth, to catch the spill
* brush glue over 1/4 or 1/3 of gourd, distributing evenly
* sprinkle glitter and spread gently with fingers
* shake off excess onto plastic
* add those darling, scary spiders which by the way, tend to stick to anything and everything very well (from Target)
