DIY: Simple Gold Painted Pumpkins

Gold Painted Pumpkins

Last year, the pumpkins in our house were super pretty – a little mixture of plain, metallic and glittered (see here) – and I loved them. This year, to go with the Mini Pumpkin Place Settings, I thought I’d keep it simple with just a bit of gold paint. I bought a few different shaped pumpkins, for a bit of interest, and just went with whichever patterns took my fancy. The thing with anything like this is that I don’t want it to look perfect or neat, I want it to be rustic and most definitely with imperfections. And the pumpkins I bought this year weren’t nearly as perfectly rounded, clean and free of dings and misshapen areas, so it all pretty much worked in my favour.

The instructions here are pretty simple – grab some acrylic paint, in a colour that’s going to stand out – think white, black and metallics, some paint brushes, and go to town covering the pumpkins in whatever patterns you feel like.
