DIY // White and Gold Pumpkins

October is finally here and the Halloween decorating is in full swing! We decided to class it up this year with some super chic white and gold pumpkins for a more modern flair. This super easy DIY literally took me half a day with dry time! They turned out so awesome that I almost want to keep them out year round (but I won't because that would just be ridiculous... wouldn't it?...)!
What you need:
plastic pumpkins (you can find some at Target or Home Depot)
1 can each of white, gold and clear gloss spray paint
painter's tape
cardboard (or alternative painting surface)
felt feet (optional)

What to do:
1. Clean pumpkins with a dry cloth and remove all stickers, tags and light bulbs or cords.

2. In a properly ventilated area, spray two coats of gold on the stems of the pumpkins with at least 20 minutes of dry time between coats.

3. When gold paint is dry enough, tape off the stem for the white coat. Make sure all of the gold is covered so you don't get any overspray.

4. Spray three coats of white on the pumpkins with at least 20 minutes of dry time between coats. You'll need to lay them on their side for one of the coats to make sure the bottom and all of the curves get proper coverage.

5. When the white paint is dry, remove the tape and spray the entire pumpkins with a coat of clear gloss paint to help the paint evenly set.

6. OPTIONAL: When the pumpkins are completely dry, evenly distribute and stick the felt feet on the bottom so they don't scratch any surfaces they sit on or get paint on anything.
That's it! So easy, right?! Obviously, the color possibilities are endless. Enjoy your fresh and chic pumpkins and let me know how you like the DIY or what colors you decide to try!
