I’ve been seeing a lot of painted pumpkins around lately and thought it would be a great idea because I like the idea of keeping my pumpkins around longer than Halloween. I was inspired by Thanksgiving to add a little pizzazz to my coffee table. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already saw my centerpiece. It was missing something so this is what I came up with.
I started out with a small pumpkin and painted it white with craft paint. I applied two coats to really hide the orange.
After searching online for exactly what I wanted on my pumpkin, I stenciled it out on paper and transferred it with pencil.
I traced the pencil markings with a black paint pen carefully so I wouldn’t peel the white paint off which was definitely harder than I thought. Future crafts like this might be with spray paint instead.
I thought it fit perfectly with the rest of the room and I hope that this little pumpkin lasts until Thanksgiving!
