These Painted Pumpkins were inspired by an article in the October 2012 issue of Chatelaine. I love the colours I used but you can use colours that compliment your home decor. This is such a pretty and modern take on a Fall decoration and is such an easy and really an inexpensive craft.
All you need to get started are miniature pumpkins, paint (I used acrylic but you can always use leftover wall paint), and brushes.
I found some Baby Boo pumpkins at my local grocery store for $4 which is super cheap considering how much you can spend buying pre-made fall decorations.
I started by giving the first pumpkin one coat of the paint (except the bottom) and then allowed to completely dry. I then gave it one more coat and then got the bottom. Done! How easy was that?
I wanted to make a plaid one for my kitchen. I had a dark lime green, a light lime green and a yellow to make the pattern. It turned out alright but I definitely prefer the look of the solid colours.
How pretty are these?
