Painting Pumpkins and How to use them!

I found this fall decorating inspiration on Pinterest, from Shanty 2 Chic. I fell in love and had to create this in my home. I know you can find white pumpkins, but they are more expensive and I have not seen them out yet this season, so I decided to paint the ones I had to complete this decorating project. I painted more than just these three. I wrapped the stems with masking tape and then used a spray primer.

I than hand painted with an off white latex paint and on the larger sized pumpkins I stenciled on some letters with a bronze metallic paint. The only cost involved for this fall decorating project was the cost of the pumpkins, I had everything else on hand.

Here is how I used these pumpkins in my fall decorating.

I love how they turned out. I love that this was an inexpensive fall decorating idea. Have you ever painted pumpkins for your Fall decorating projects?

    • Debbie, It was simple and I love how white pumpkins look. It would of been even simpler if I had a white pumpkins to start with. LOL
      I guess us DIYers have to make it more complicated than it needs to be!
