Glittered Foam Pumpkin Craft - After School Art

We made carved and glittered foam pumpkins in today's after school art class.
The girls "carved" designs into the foam pumpkins with pencil.  
Then we brushed them with brown/red and gold paint (to settle the color in the cracks).  
On the other two sides they painted with mod podge and glittered.  
We also made bows and glittered leaves to add to the top of the pumpkins.
