Painting Pumpkins

Fall and Halloween is my favorite time of year, and I love pumpkins. So when I went to a yard sale and found 6 foam pumpkins I had to get them! They were the generic kinda brightly orange pumpkins with dirt on them so they needed a little updating.

I started out paint them white and let them dry, then I mixed white and antiquing gel and white acrylic paint to tone it down some all over the pumpkin then wiped it off then used white over the finish and white it over to mute the brown color, the paint was matte so it help make the pumpkin look dirty and not freshly painted. 

I absolutely love how they turned out! The no longer look like yard sale pumpkins.

What do y'all think? Would you have these made over pumpkins in your house?
