Anyway, I digress... here is one of the sparkly pumpkins with tape on the stem. In the end, I ended up lighting spraying the stems and leaves on the black ones anyway. I actually like the way the sparkly stayed a little and there is a little hint of orange under each of them even after painting.
Here is a white one being worked on. Here is the whole group completed. Look for my next post to see how I used them for my Halloween decorating!
