I started with a batch of small pumpkins,
and used acrylic paint to give them a coat of white.
Since I had the bright blue left over from the chair project, I decided to use it.
Besides the turquoise and white, I used gold and silver acrylics.
Everything was painted on freehand, I guess I am just too lazy to make and stick on patterns.
The little imperfections just add to the charm of the small gourds.
It was a fun and fast project. If you decide to try it yourself, don't be afraid of using whatever leftover colors you have at home. Pumpkins can come in many colors.
I am happy with how this endeavor turned out. Since I am definitely not a pumpkin carver, painting these was not only fun, but a great alternative to traditional pumpkin decorating!
