DIY White Pumpkins

I heart white pumpkins.
However, we only planted the orange kind this year in our garden.
So my diy solution to having a mixture of both orange and white pumpkins was to simply take a couple of orange pumpkins and spray paint them white!

This is such a simple project!!!

I bought one can of Krylon semi-gloss in ivory.
{A little off white.}

I taped off the stem of each pumpkin first, then sprayed each pumpkin with a white primer.

I waited about 15-20 minutes, and then sprayed both pumpkins with about two coats of the ivory paint.

Here's the finished product!
{I know you're supposed to group objects in odd numbers when decorating, but I'm still waiting for more pumpkins to be ready from the garden.  So this is it for now.}

It's beginning to feel more and more like fall around this neck of the woods!

Cute cute... I started decorating the front porch for Fall myself... Perhaps a TAD bit early but who cares! It may only be the first week but it IS still September! :)

So cute and simple! Pumpkins are so cheerful and yours look great. In fact they'd look wonderful on my black corner table, so you want to send them on over? Lol!
