I love those dollar store pumpkins! You know I’ve done a lot with those babies: this, this, this and this. And now, today, I’m excited to show you yet another way to easily update those dollar store craft pumpkins. This project was inspired by a DIY Home Remodeling project we did in the old house. We painted “granite” look countertops in our kitchen! Remember this post?! It was fun and easy and lasted a long time. So, today, I’m taking that same idea and extending it to a craft pumpkin to create this cute faux finish pumpkin!
Faux Finish Painted Pumpkin: Dollar Store Pumpkin Crafts
1 craft pumpkin
3 acrylic paint colors (yellow, orange, brown)
clear spray polyurethane
green washi tape
1. Starting with the lightest color (yellow), sponge it onto the pumpkin lightly. Make sure you can still see plenty of white!
2. Move onto the next color (orange). Sponge it on lightly.
3. Lastly, sponge on the darkest color (brown).
4. Once dry, spray it well with a clear polyurethane. Wrap the stem with the green tape! Done!
