Giving My Pumpkins the Fairy Godmother Treatment {DIY}

DIY Gold Pumpkins via

I decided that this fall would be a “no orange” decorating season. I’ve been collecting fall decor for nine years, and I just felt it was time for a change from the usual orange/red/yellow/brown palette.

In order to do that on a small budget, I had to work with what I had on hand. I picked up a few bottles of acrylic paint and package of sponge brushes from Hob Lob, and went to work. This project was so simple and fun! I’m not a crafty person, but I really enjoyed giving my pumpkins the Fairy Godmother treatment!

Supplies needed to give your pumpkins the fairy godmother treatment via

I gave them at least 3 coats of paint, allowing an hour in between coats to dry. For the polka dots, I used a q-tip and swirled it in a circle. My pine cones were looking a little boring, so I used the sponge brush and dabbed a little gold metallic paint on them as well. I love how everything turned out!

  1. I REALLY like this look. My living room is an orangey/yellow color, so I don’t like decorating with additional oranges and red to avoid over-kill. Great idea to do more of a gold/cream/brown color pallet. I might have to steal it ;-).


  2. How pretty!! I love the updates you gave your decor. I also love the fairy god mother treatment label. I think your decorations would be perfect from now through Thanksgiving. Great work 🙂 Also, love that polka-dot pumpkin!!
