Decorating for any holiday is one of my favourite things to do and so I couldn’t wait to get going on my pumpkins this year! I wanted to try to create a pumpkin that would fit into the colour palette of our home and brought a touch of elegance to our doorstep. If you are looking to create a similar look this year, this DIY will help you out! And what’s more is that it is an easy and affordable way to add a touch of class to the season. You can choose a colour palette that best fits your style and I think these are a great addition to anything spooky too!
What You Need:
-Pumpkins (variety of sizes – I also used tiny pumpkins)
-Acrylic Paint (colours of your choosing)
-Spray Paint (if you choose to do little pumpkins)
What To Do:
1. Begin by spray painting little pumpkins and setting aside to dry
2. Paint your pumpkins with acrylic paint and allow to dry. I found my pumpkins needed two coats each
3. Once dry, take a paint brush and dip in the colour you want as your paint splatter. Using your finger, brush it along the bristles of the brush to “flick” paint onto pumpkin. You can flick the paint from different distances to create texture
Allow to dry and display! How easy is that? I love these pumpkins so much I think they add so much to the front steps and I have already received so many compliments on them!
