    I do not like glitter blast paint. I will use regular craft paint and regular glitter if needed. Also Amazon asking for a 5 oz can for 41.00 , are they nuts, I got mine for 4.99 with coupon. these are cute crafts.

      Thank you so much hun! Wow that is crazy expensive, I purchase mine from a local craft store they sell theirs for $6.50 every day. But it would look just as cute with regular glitter as well, would also make it fun for kids to cover in glitter 😉

    These are so cute, I think it would be fun to try it with styrofoam so the troll pumpkin could be used year afte year.

    Thank you for this fantastic idea! We just had a Trolltastic Pumpkin Party at my school as a fundraiser for Christmas Cheer. We had around 40 kids and their families participate and raised nearly $400 for our adopted family. We already have parents and kids begging for a Christmas craft party. I’ll be watching your site for more great ideas!

    Im making these now, the instructions are not good, dont have an idea on how to cut or glue the ears. I dont do crafts and need more details

      I’m having trouble making the headbands stay on

      1. Sheena (Post author)

        I would try another glue if hot glue is not holding or if you have a stiff headband possibly poke it into your pumpkin a bit?

  8. Jessica Enrietta

    What kind of Headband do you use? A regular headband or elastic headband?

    1. Sheena (Post author)

      Hi there, I used just a standard headband for mine!

    Hi there. Love this idea…Me and my students are making this for the school pumpkin contest…instead of the headband I attached the tulle to a pink pipe cleaner and it is perfect…can’t wait until tomorrow…the paint should be dry and we can attach all of the pieces!!!! Cute and simple!!! Thanks.
