I wanted to jazz them up a bit. I really didn't like that orange colour on them, so I whipped out my can of white paint and decided to do some mini white pumpkins. So I painted half of them white.
I also bought a can of burgundy red paint to do some in red (as a sort of accent to the white). And so the other half got a new fresh coat of red paint.
After they completely dried, I brought them in. But something was amiss. These pumpkins needed a touch of something....
So I decided to use some gold acrylic paint that I had and add a touch of gold to them. At first, what I had in my vision didn't end up turning out to be like that. So I decided to wipe off the gold using a napkin. But to my surprise, what ended up happening was a miracle (well...a DIY-disaster-turned-miracle!). It gave the pumpkins a vintage type of look, which totally worked for me!!
After drying, this is what they turned out to look like!
I also ended up giving a couple pine cones a light spray of white paint. I will surely re-use these come Christmas-time!
