Faux Pumpkins Turned Blue!

2 Materials
1 Hour

Hey there, Sweet Friends, I’ve got Pumpkin Fever! Last month as I was digging through my Fall Holiday Bins, I discovered some Faux Pumpkins from years past.

I thought it would be fun to do a little Faux Pumpkin Makeover!


Today I’m going to show you how you can take some ordinary Faux Pumpkins and make them extraordinary!

note aside: the orange pumpkins against the white hydrangeas are really lovely…..but I’ve got Pumpkin Fever and me and orange aren’t getting along lately! 


You probably didn’t know that my favorite color is blue.

Not just any blue, I prefer the light turquoise blue.

Yes, the color that is on my logo.


And yes, I decided to paint some Pumpkins blue.

And that my Sweet Friends, is what you call Pumpkin Fever!

And boy did I get lucky when Rustoleum wanted to partner with me on a project. Immediately I knew the color I wanted to pick…Satin Aqua.

Rustoleum's Painter’s Touch is a 2x Ultra Cover Satin Spray. The Satin Aqua, in my opinion, is a cross between a baby blue and a turquoise.

For these Faux Pumpkins and Gourds, I sprayed two coats of  Rustoleum’s Painter’s Touch onto the Pumpkins and Gourds. I was able to get great coverage with two coats. Be sure to read the directions on the can before starting. 

The pumpkins came out so pretty that I decided to admire them for a few days until…

Come back next week and I’ll show you what happened next.

Thanks Rustoleum for inspiring me to create Blue Pumpkins.

Make it a great day.
