I know that white pumpkins aren’t anything new but how many of us have seen a turquoise pumpkin? Well, now here’s your chance to see one!
I know!!!! Don't you just love it!!!?? Since turquoise is my accent color in the sunroom I took some craft paint and painted over one of the cheap orange pumpkins from Wal Mart
I even like the way some of the orange shows through….
I put it on my chippy turquoise table and love the way it pops against the whites & creams
I also wrapped the stem with twine
That’s all I did in the sunroom but I think it makes a HUGE statement…..my neighbor came in and saw it and had a fit!
Now there’s nothing new about white pumpkins so I took another one of my Wal Mart pumpkins and sprayed it gloss white
I started out painting it with white craft paint but for some reason it just wasn’t working. So I took it outside and held the stem with a gloved hand and sprayed away! It took a couple of coats and it’s not perfect, there are some runs (and hot glue strings) but I think its beauty is in its imperfection
Get ready for an overload of pictures….I couldn’t decide which way I like it best….
On top of an old scale
or by itself….
(Maybe one of these days I’ll get around to adding pictures to my frames)
I added some moss to the “neck” to cover where I got some overspray on the stem
Both of these projects were quick, easy and inexpensive that anyone can do
Best of all, I can use these again next year if I want to or change the color again
I hope my little pumpkins show that you don’t have to go “all out” to get a “WOW” factor! Sometimes less really is more (at least that’s what I keep telling myself!)
