The great thing about using chalk paint, is that there is no prep for this easy fall DIY project. Just start painting! Plus the chalk paint gives the pumpkins a little more texture than using acrylic paint.

Once the paint was dry, I added a little bling to the stem using my favorite product for giving pieces a gold finish.

    Did you seal the finish of the pumpkins? They look lovely

    I wonder if this would work on the Dollar Tree ceramic pumpkins too?

      Ann, I don't see why not. If the ceramic is really shiny you might have to scuff it up a bit. Good luck!
