This all started when my husband and I were browsing in Pier One. I spotted a few gold pumpkins and made a mental note to do something similar when the colder weather hit. As luck would have it, I found some orange and black pumpkins a few weeks later in the dollar bin at Target. I handcrafted most of our wedding decorations, so I had a surplus of gold paint in the basement. I tossed a couple of pumpkins in my cart, handed the cashier $3.00 and got set to work.
For this project, I highly recommend working outside. The paint can be pretty stinky
DIY Gold Pumpkins
Krylon Metallic Spray
1. Cover surface you'll be working on with towel, trash bag or old sheet. Follow instructions on paint can to prime paint - generally, you will need to shake the can 1-2 minutes prior to using.
2. Begin by spraying your pumpkin with light coats - allow 1-2 minutes between coats. If you spray too thickly in any one area, the paint will begin to run.
3. When dry to the touch on the tops, flip the pumpkins upside down and gently spray the bottoms.
4. Allow to dry overnight on a foil lined baking sheet.
5. Show off your beautiful new decorations around your home.
