Pick a color that will also work for your Christmas decor and keep the candles up through the holiday season.

Step 2: Wrap your choice of Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape around a mason jar, wrapping 3 rows. I used gold to match my tablescape, but multi glitter or white would also be fun! Scotch® Expressions are versatile, functional and fun to craft with!

Step 4: Keep the Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape handy, we’ll be embellishing some pumpkins! Add long strips of tape to the pumpkin, from the top to the bottom, as shown in the photo below.

Step 5: To make the glitter confetti pumpkins, use a sponge brush to apply Scotch® Create Multipurpose Glue to the top half of the pumpkins. Scotch® Create has adhesives, from masking tape to spray adhesives, for any project!

Step 6: Quickly, before the glue dried, sprinkle confetti glitter on top. You’ll want to go heavier with the glitter on the top and sprinkle less glitter toward the bottom.
