inspired by kerisa’s post on pumpkin painting the other day, and with our family pumpkin picking finds this past sunday…i thought i’d share this fabulous diy that i am going to “attempt” on our pumpkins this year.
note, i said “attempt” because unlike kerisa & kate…i am FAR from a diy kinda gal!! i get too caught up in the perfection of something, that i never actually like my own diy projects. but i do try, and sometimes (like the case with the ombre lampshade in my son’s nursery) i actually love and am super proud of how my “attempts” turn out!!
if you are diy scaredy cat like me, this ombre painted pumpkin tutorial i found on funkytime seems simple enough to create. not to mention it makes for some pretty stylish looking fall decor!!!!
1: spray paint the pumpkin white (as a base).
2: paint the bottom with the darkest hue. Pink in my case.
3: paint the center orange. Next, paint the 3rd section with your lightest color, white.
4: blend the colors together with a slightly wet cotton ball , until areas and lines bleed together.
can’t be too hard right?? i’m actually really excited to try it out!!! thank you SO SO much funkytime!!!
