Getting creative for fall means creating a different look for my fall dining table. This meant having some fun with artificial pumpkins, paint and hot glue! I would love to have you stop by my blog , Celebrate & Decorate for more details as well as sign up for my latest creations, posts, recipes, exclusives, and more...
White on White Elegant Pumpkins for Fall
Pulling out some faux pumpkins from last year’s fall decor. I heated up the glue gun and went to work. You can add any pattern you want with hot glue. The smallest pumpkins were easiest with just simple dots.
A larger pumpkin already had some white paint on it. Using a pencil, I drew out the pattern I wanted to follow with the hot glue.
Follow along the pattern you have drawn on the pumpkin. Sometimes I drew lines with the glue and sometimes I used individual dots as shown above.
Make sure you remove all of the little threads of hot glue before you paint your pumpkins. I first sprayed a hair dryer on mine, which removed a lot of the threads. Then I used a tiny pair of scissors or a pair of tweezers to remove as many threads as I could. If you leave threads and then paint your pumpkin, the paint will expose all of the threads.
While you are adding the glue to the pumpkins, make sure you turn the pumpkins so that the glue does not drip.
When you are happy with the glue, it is time to paint. Use a flat or satin spray paint made for plastic. Remember to spray with a couple of light coats rather than trying to cover your pumpkins all at once.
After spray painting the pumpkins, I added gold paint to the stems for contrast. You could also paint them any contrasting color, like black or blue.
Your decorated pumpkins are ready to display! Happy fall!
