Pottery Barn Pumpkin Pillow Knock Off
After falling for Potter Barn's beautiful pumpkin style pillow for this season, I knew I wanted something just like it for my house. I decided that if I could find an affordable pillow case to cover one of my existing pillows I could possibly pull off the pumpkin design.
I had come across a great pillow case cover at Hobby Lobby for $4.99! Quite the steal and the color was perfect. I decided to hand paint the pumpkin and use the Pottery Barn photo as my guideline.
Though the orange is perfect for Fall I prefer to decorate my home in neutrals. I used white, light gray, and dark gray acrylic paint to create a neutral pumpkin. One of the most important parts to this project was to use water with the paint. This really helps to control the colors without over doing the color.
If you plan on tackling this project and are not sure about sketching the pumpkin and then hand painting yourself possibly use a stencil for the pumpkin and then just have fun with it. The pillow is suppose to seem homemade so don't be too much of a perfectionist on this one.
