Bad styrofoam pumpkin!

Feeling a little bored like I was today? I headed on over to Hobby Lobby and got these (forgot to take a picture of my actual ones.....bad blogger) extremely attractive pumpkins and thought they could use some tlc.


I bought some bronzeish spray paint and had at it! I first removed the stems and leaves then reattached them with hot glue after spraying them. Found some fall ribbon and whala....




Super cheap too!
Large pumpkin - 8.00
Medium - 4.00
Small - 2.00

Had the spray paint and ribbon already!

Amazing what you did with those pumpkins. They are beautiful (I never thought I would use "beautiful" to describe pumpkins).

Cute blog, I just became a follower.

Hugs,

Hello Fellow Fall Festival Friend! I love your bronze pumpkins! I would much rather decorate with some that I can reuse than the ones you have to discard! Thanks for the idea! Have a great day!

Pretty! I am planning to paint my pumpkins silver. It's a nice unexpected touch of color.

Marisa said...

What a great color! Do you have the spray paint can around still? What's the name of the color?

Jacqueline said...

These are wonderful. I always do this with my real pumpkins for Thanksgiving, but the foam ones would last and last. Great idea.

I have this exact project in mind this year too. It came out so well, I love the metallic!
