Here is her tutorial for painting pumpkins, in her own words:
Want blue/green pumpkins but hate to spend the bank?
You can change your old ones as easy as ABC.
I started with some craft paint. Celery green was my base color for this pumpkin.
I just painted one quick coat with a foam brush.
Between layers I hang them to dry like this..
After my first coat dried, I used slate green. You can get real creative with your colors. I tried to stay with colors close to my decor.
I left the cracks of the pumpkins the darker shade for some contrast :)
See how a little orange showing through looks nautral?
Have fun with it! On a few I even added a little grey/black. For shiny pumpkins, I sprayed on a little clear coat.
This was such a fun project! Just think of the possibilities.... Have fun! susie~
Thank you so much Suzie for sharing this DIY pumpkin project with us. I'm anxious to get to the store and pick up a few pumpkins to paint for my own home.
