Any search of the terms "paint pouring," "acrylic pouring," or "marbling," will bring up lots of projects and techniques. Paint pouring is a lot of fun and produces amazing and sometimes unexpected results. It's a great project for beginner and advanced DIYers.
In this video and post, I'm making a trio of "pumpkins" for a little fall decor.

These are the paints and marbling medium (also known as pouring medium). I used three sizes of wood rounds which I painted with Rust-Oleum's metallic rust spray paint. Tip: When pouring on wood, it's a good idea to paint the piece prior to pouring. I've found the paint moves more smoothly over the piece if it is painted first.
You'll need small cups for each individual color and something to stir with. It's a good idea to use a puppy pad to keep your work surface clean and use an old cooling rack to elevated you poured piece.
The craft paint is mixed in a one to one ratio with the pouring medium. That is, if you use a tablespoon of paint, you'll need to mix in a tablespoon of medium. That gold paint in the foreground was not mixed as it was thin enough without added medium.
Once everything is mixed, it's time to pour! This is the fun part. You'll notice there is more of the orange than the other colors. This was deliberate as I wanted orange to be the main color.
Once the paints are poured, you tilt and turn the piece until the colors run over the edge. I didn't use enough paint initially so I had to go back and add more color to the edges. Once everything was dry, I painted the sides with the brown craft paint.
To encourage cell formation, I gave the piece a little spritz of silicone spray. Just a a little and not over the entire piece. I think the randomness of the cells in just a few places looks better than having them over the entire surface.
I cut a small block, distressed it and hot glued it to the top of the 'pumpkins' as a stem.
The pieces were finished with jute and floral wire tendrils.
These little paint poured 'pumpkins' are great fall into Thanksgiving decor.

I LOVE WALL ART and I LOVE BABY NURSERIES.So when I debuted Collin’s nursery design, I knew a follow-up “how to blog” was coming for the feature woodland art I created for above his dresser. I really do believe it is the piece that ties the entire space together!
Hi, I'm Liz from Simple Decorating Tips!I’m not an expert gardener, I, like how my dad used to describe himself, am a ‘jack of all trades, and a king of none’… I know a lot, well… a little about a lot of things. But here are some things I know about the hydrangea tree we inherited when we moved into a 100 year old house…
I love to decorate for Fall and have been looking for inexpensive ways to add more pumpkins to my decor. While at Haven conference, I received a round piece of wood and a clock kit (from Walnut Hollow) in the Deco Art session, so I used it and made it into a seasonal clock!
There is so much seasonal inspiration in the home decor stores, but I find it very difficult to purchase those items if I know I can do it myself!
I spied a black and gold glammed up pumpkin that I REALLY liked and thought, "anyone can draw a pumpkin!" So I gathered my tools, drew out a plan three times the size of the inspiration piece and got to work.
Now that the leaves are changing I wanted to create a sign to stand at my steps outdoors with my pumpkins. I'm so happy that I can create one so easily now! Backstory--I went to my first paint party 2 years ago with my granddaughter. We LOVED it! But with the sign painting parties costing what they do it's hard to do it as often as we would like. So after researching it I discovered this could definitely be my DIY dream come true and purchased my first Cricut! Compared to the classes or party prices I have come out WAY ahead by purchasing my Cricut. In fact with research on deals I was able to get mine for about $100 after sale and rebate!
Plastic pumpkins can be purchased just about anywhere and they're really inexpensive. You can turn those plastic pumpkins into beautiful fall planters with just a little bit of paint.

Ok I am guilty of painting a few lost causes when it comes to furniture . But I could tell this poor girl was sacrificed to someone that had good intentions but it was so ugly Goodwill sold it for $19.99 . So you know me it had to be fixed.
Tis the season to start thinking about Christmas decor and my mind has been racing with ideas. On a trip to my Dollar Store I spotted three different size pails and I started to pile them on top of each other in the middle of the aisle. Yes I got a few funny glances, but I was too excited to care.I struggled for a brief moment with what I was going to use for the base then it hit me. A lamp base of course. I knew this was going to make a great tree!
Even though this is a gingerbread garland , unfortunately it's not the edible kind. A bit like the super cute gingerbread man advent calendar I made this year too!I don't know about you, but as a family we get swamped with cardboard packaging this time of the year. Everyone seems to be doing most of their Christmas shopping on Amazon! I decided to reuse some of the Amazon boxes for a fun festive decoration.

Two of our three Workshop Wednesday segments were in Steph's kitchen. First we shared a look back at our Aspect Peel and Stick backsplash projects. You can see that here on Hometalk. We installed this two weeks ago and have been very pleased with how it has held up.
I’m not sure about you but I have always been intimidated about wallpaper. I consider myself an avid remodeler been doing this since the 80s. So I was not sure if it was hard to do it was just scary to lineup the textures and such. So when my daughter asked me to help her with her-so teeny little bathroom of course I agreed but I was still a little intimidated.
