These painted pumpkins are perfect for creating a more neutral decor. I was really torn with my color choice. You know how much I love blue, turquoise, aqua, navy…

Recently I painted the >> mirror and lamps, everything looks so light and bright in the foyer now. I had the paint left over from that project, the pumpkins are from the last couple of years. This was a very budget friendly makeover.

Materials Needed:

  • Craft or Chalk Based paint
  • Paint brush

Bottoms up – I started at the bottom half first, I painted them with 2 coats of paint. That’s it 😉

Muted colors of nature, seed pods, acorns and feathers finish the buffet arrangement.  I love these big sprays of florals. It’s two large floral picks, all my favorite fall ingredients are included. Love the hints of gold on a few of the leaves and on the acorns. All I had to do was fluff it up and add a few corn husk sprigs. I placed the large cream colored berry picks in the back for filler.

Now that I’ve painted my fall pumpkin stash, I wonder what color they will be next year! That’s one thing I love about faux pumpkins, they last forever. I’m thinking aqua for their next transformation!

    1. I use my orange craft pumpkins outside in my garden for the fall season.
      They have faded over the years. I will try craft and /or the chalk based paint to
      refresh them. I hope the paint will last for several more years.
      My pumpkins are hollow and light weight. I drill a small hole in the top and
      one on the bottom. I use short thin metal post to hold them in the ground.
      No lost pumpkins yet!

    2. Love the white pumpkins! I’ve painted pumpkins for years long before it became popular and not in just one color or this kind of paint. Thanks for sharing.

    3. I love your white pumpkins! Your arrangement is so pretty, I hope I can somehow copy it. I’m ready to get all mine out and start painting!

    4. Beautiful. Fall is my favorite time of year for decorating. I typically decorate for fall instead of decorating for Halloween. This way it stays nice till it is time to decorate for Christmas. I love all the ideas.

    5. your pumpkins look so pretty how you have everything arranged. You know I have never painted a pumpkin. I probably have a few in my stash that could use a good touch up.
