I'm updating some older fall decor and these pumpkins and basket are on my list of "to do" stuff. So I'm going to paint them , something different, something more... hmm
I'm going to look on the computer for other pumpkin colors. I found some pretty colorful pumpkins!

Orange pumpkins, orange basket be GONE  with some paint!

I started with Marshmallow color from Country Chic (thanks for the gift!) and painted both pumpkins.

I wasn't sure what color to use so I tested a few out on the bottom of one pumpkin. I like the darker one

I used a small flat brush around the stalk,

then started to make lines down the seams of the pumpkin. I used the brush to dab on the line (a sort of smudge). I just followed the lines on the pumpkin! Super easy! Wow they look great!

I then painted the basket with the Marshmallow too!

    I love your look. So much more creative and artistic than plain old orange!!!

      They needed an update so bad that just plain white would have been better but I also needed some color and I love to paint! Thank you so much Linda!
