Fall will be here before we know it and I love to decorate. I’m just not into all of the traditional orange. I decided to be a little untraditional and go for a copper and white decor. I couldn’t find anything at the store that I really liked so here is my DIY tutorial.
What I used:
- Plain papier mache pumpkin that I purchased at Hobby Lobby for 40% off. Yay me!
- White sponges
- Round paint sponges
- Copper paint (or any fun color you choose)
The process was really quite simple. I am far from crafty so I would say this is definitely a beginner level craft!
I started off by spray painting the pumpkin outside. Of course it was a little windy that day so I got a little messy. When the pumpkin was dry I used the three different sized sponges to make a random pattern with the copper paint. And that is pretty much it. I did add some twine to the stem that I had laying around.
I love how it came out! The white and copper are a perfect combination and it really stands out. In total this project only cost me about $8. The pumpkin was $6, the sponges were $2, and I already had the spray paint and copper paint.
