Pumpkins haven't really made it to the market yet but
this morning I had a run to the pharmacy and they had all fall decor at 50% off so I snatch a few pumpkins and gourds. Its was time to finally try what I have been wanting to do for so long...
Paint a few pumpkins and gourds in white.
How to: I tried the acrylic but that did not work. Not a great cover at all. So I decided to mix some chalk paint and found that laying it on thick was actually working. Paint was thick and lumpy too but I was enjoying the results. It took three coats, but I'm cheap and I was determined to make them work and finally got them right!!
Brushed the stems with a little antique medium and when they were good and dry I was excited to bring them in an play... I love they way they turned out.
Notice how the paint left a lumpy texture on my pumpkins which made them even more unique and pretty!!
I am loving the mix of white textures from laces and linen with the neutrals.
And there you have it!
What do you think? You'll give this a try?
