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!
