I love the look of heirloom pumpkins and those cute little white pumpkins called “baby boo”.
But…I always have a hard time finding them.
This year, I decided to make my own.
I found these cute little 4″ metallic pumpkins* at my local Dollar Tree*.
At $1.00 each, I couldn’t pass them up.
I painted the pumpkins with Americana Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint in White Birch*.
It took 4-5 coats. In hindsight, I wish I would have left a little green showing through.
I used Americana Multi-Surface Satin Acrylics Paint in Coffee Bean* to paint the stem and
accent the grooves of the pumpkin. To make it look more realistic, I used a baby wipe to
strategically wipe off some of the extra brown paint.
I really please with the way they turned out.
Best part is… they won’t spoil and I can reuse them year after year.
