Painted Pumpkins

I love seeing all the pumpkins popping up in the stores, mainly because it’s the indication that Fall is here, and who doesn’t love the colors of Fall? The varying shades of yellows, oranges, reds, and browns are gorgeous and we loving going outside to enjoy them as often as possible. But, this year we wanted to try something a little different with the inside décor and Thrifty Rehab delivered.


This painted pumpkin centerpiece is stunning! The wooden tray, dried flowers, pinecones, and these DIY mercury glass candles add simple and inexpensive sophistication. If you’re thinking, why change up traditional Fall colors? We ask, why not!?

These painted pumpkins can dress up your Thanksgiving dinner table or decorate your mantle for a festive and creative display. The possibilities are endless.

This may be the simplest DIY to-date. Faux pumpkins are available to purchase nearly everywhere. One of our favorites are these artificial crafting pumpkins – as you can see, the original colors were not exactly what we were looking for.

Nonetheless, the solution was simple as only one coat of DecoArt metallic and chalk paint was required. Acrylic paints also provide many possibilities. No matter what colors or types of paint you choose, lay down some newspaper; line up your pumpkins and paint. But most importantly, have fun!
