It’s October and fall is officially here. The trees are turning colours and every where you go, you find pumpkins for sale. Carving pumpkins is always a lot of fun but this year I am really loving the idea of painted pumpkins! Take a look at a few of my favourite ideas – you might find the perfect pumpkin for your Thanksgiving or Halloween decor!
This looks like it could be fairly simple. A little spray paint and a Sharpie would do the trick. If you’re a little artistic, you could draw a freehand design. If not – a stencil would also work.
Okay – I might have cheated a little with this one. These aren’t painted – they are decorated with paper decoupage. They were just to pretty to pass up. You can see a complete tutorial on how to make this (it’s easier then painting!) at Confessions of Plate Addict.
If you’re looking for something a little more contemporary, this centerpiece by Simcoe Street is perfect. A selection of spray painted pumpkins gathered together with a few simple pillar candles makes a clean, fresh centerpiece that is absolutely stunning!
For a glamorous look that adds an elegant touch to your fall decor – try going metallic. These pumpkins from Brown Paper Packages are spray painted silver and decorated with rhinestone stickers! So simple and so chic!
