Things this week have been busy crazy! So I thought I'd share a cute pumpkin painting idea from last fall.
I purchased faux pumpkins from my local craft store so I could display them for more than one season. I love chevron, but I didn't necessarily want to paint an entire pumpkin chevron, so I taped of the center of this pumpkin with masking tape in the zig zag pattern all the way around.
I painted the top half with Martha Stewart Metallic gold. I applied the paint with a sponge brush. The first coat of paint was pretty thin so I opted for a second coat after the first had dried.
After painting the pumpkin with two coats the gold was much more prominent.
The gold was a bit too yellow for my preference so after removing the tape from the pumpkin I brushed a brown antiquing glaze over the entire surface. I love the final look.
I hope you are all doing well! I will share more fun Fall DIY's soon.
Until next time,
