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!
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!
