Black and Silver Pumpkins

Remember last week I showed you my Halloween decor and said I wasn't finished? Well I gave those orange dollar store pumpkins a makeover. Here's what I did:
  • Cut stem off the pumpkins
  • Find a new stem to use (I used sticks found in my front yard)
  • Spray paint pumpkins and stems silver and let them dry completely
  • Polka Dot Pumpkin - using a glue stick lid press it onto the pumpkin just enough to make a circle outline. Paint each circle with craft paint. I didn't have any small brushes so I used a q-tip.
  • Diamond Pumpkin - Draw diamonds on with a marker and then paint with craft paint and foam brush.
  • Striped Pumpkin - Paint every other section of the pumpkins with craft paint and foam brush.
  • Initial Pumpkin - Spray paint thumb tacks black. Once dry stick in pumpkin making your initial.
  • Hot glue new stems in place and add ribbon.
  • Easy easy easy! You're done! Enjoy!

I have seen the reference to the Dollar Store pumpkins all over blogland (yours too)...I better get over there if I could have something that turned out HALF as cute as yours! Very cute and nice job :)

Cute idea marie! I'm loving the new decorations on pumpkins lately rather than cutting them out.
