I bought a few baby pumpkins the other day and since I can't leave anything in it's original condition...I painted them. I've been seeing these adorable painted pumps all over Pinterest so I thought I'd give it a whirl.
I decided to do a polka dot design first using my Martha Stewart Gold Glitter paint and paint sponge.
Pretty self explanatory. I evenly distributed the dots around the pumpkin and then cleaned up any drips as it was drying. So easy!
Next I thought I'd do a chevron-ish zig zag pattern in white so I grabbed a bottle of basic white acrylic paint and a medium width brush (about 1 inch) and went for it! Now, if I had more time I would have used painter's tape to create the pattern - but this was a quick project so I decided to free-hand the design. I did the thick zig zag first and the smaller one second. I used the smaller brush to clean up the edges :)
Would you be surprised to know that I want to buy about 10 more and decorate them all? No, you wouldnt? Okay then!
I'm supposed to carve pumpkins with the boyfriend this week. What should I carve? UK themed? Scary? My initials? What do you think?
