New Color for Old Pumpkins
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!
Added some moss.
Now add a few little leaves to the mix and FINISHED!!
That is what paint can do! Love my updated pumpkin basket ! Now they have some character!
Remember if I can make this so can you! Thanks for looking!
