Simple & Affordable DIY Shabby Chic Pumpkin


Shabby Chic is one of my favorite looks, especially for fall. It is so classy and subtle which can easily transition into beautiful Thanksgiving decor.
I saw some beautiful shabby chic craft pumpkins at an antique store a few weeks ago. The price tag was not so pretty, $28.00 a piece! And they were small. So, I decided to recreate the same look on my own with some dollar store pumpkins. This easy DIY cheap shabby chic pumpkin that is totally perfect for anyone to try out!

Step One:
Paint pumpkin completely with white chalk paint. This will only take a few minutes to dry.

Step Two:
With a different color in acrylic paint, add it to creases , then with a towel or sponge, blend it. Orange was for one pumpkin and gray was used on the other. It should create a chippy look as shown in second picture. The key to this step is to add it a little bit heavier in the crease, so it will appear darker.
