Supplies to DIY your own painted pumpkin.

Start with a faux pumpkin (we went gaga over this deep gray color). Using a wide bristle brush, dip into glitzy gold paint and make short swipes sporadically across the space. Take your time. Make a few marks then pause to see how it looks. Add a few more swipes and stop to decide how you like what you see. Quick Tip: It’s easy to add more marks, but not so much to take them away. We love how the bright gold gleams against the gray pumpkin – precious! Next we picked a white pumpkin. We liked how clean and classic it looked, so we simply mod podged the stem and added gold glitter. 

Finally, a traditional orange pumpkin gets a glamorous makeover when we add eyelashes with a permanent marker! We can’t wait to see the unique gathering of gourds you put together for your porch!
