Tis the season to be decorating!!! My husband asked, "When did Halloween get so popular?" crazy man, seriously...I said, "Didn't you know in the decorating world Halloween is the NEW Christmas!!!!" Even we were amazed last year by all the new decor, Halloween has definately been bumped up to an all out decorating extravaganza!!!! These are gilded pumpkins if you want the whole process go to Country Living.com. Last year we did these pumpkins our own way. The effect was the same, it just didn't cost as much, it's hard to spend alot on something that is going to rot! Pick your desired pattern (by pick we mean think about it in your head), polka dots, squiggles, etc. Grab spray paint, craft paint, sponge brushes, skinny art brushes for detail, gel stain. Walmart is a great place or Home Depot for these supplies. Spray paint is around a dollar at both locations!!! Make sure there is no condensation of any kind on the pumpkin. Spray with desired color then embellish with craft paint, then wipe gel stain over the entire surface carefully. Of course in between each step you are allowing the pumpkin to dry. The aged look is accomplished with the stain! You can use spray varnish or spray glitter after if you'd like extra sparkle!!! These do not hold up well if directly hit by rain or snow!!!!
Have a FABULOUS time!!!
Love, The Tipsy Girls
