Last Minute DIY Faux Pumpkin

Amanda Puleo

I wanted to put together some easy last minute Fall DIY Decorations. I love carving pumpkins! But this year, I was really into trying some new things. I wanted to create pumpkins that I could put around the apartment and leave out past Halloween. I saw this little kraft paper pumpkin at Target and on the shelf next to it was this amazing looking gold metallic paint and some Sharpie paint markers. So I decided to turn it into a fun little hand lettering project.

I decided to paint my pumpkin white, but you can do whatever color scheme you want! Target had lots of different paint color options! After the white paint dried, I added the gold to the stem. If you don't want to do lettering on your pumpkin, you can do a fun pattern, or even draw a sugar skull! I had fun with it, I hope you do too! And thinking of all the holiday themed words really got me into the mood for Halloween!
