Fall design on a dime

Sharing is caring!

This year I vowed not to spend any money on my fall decorating and I have to admit, sticking to it has been difficult.  I decided to change things up a bit this year by using all green and white pumpkins.  Over the years I have bought several faux pumpkins, problem is the majority of them are orange.  So I did what anyone would do, I painted them!

Painting faux pumpkins from orange to white is a time consuming process and takes many coats of paint!  I am here to tell you, the pain staking task of painting them was totally worth the money I saved by buying new!  Faux pumpkins are not cheap!


Paint is!  Painting the pumpkins green was slick!  The paint covered amazing and adding some highlights with white paint helped to make them look more realistic.  Messy, but cute!  It is hard to believe these are the same orange pumpkins I started with.
