I like to add a little whimsy to holiday decorating, and this painted pumpkin man is the perfect way to do it! And, the pumpkins cost a total of $4. You can't beat that!
I got the pumpkin for the head from the Dollar Store for $1, and the pumpkin for the base from the Target dollar section for $3. I painted the dollar store pumpkin with blue paint that I used for apiece of furniture I recently painted. It matched my house perfectly! I painted the face with Liquid Leaf. I love Liquid Leaf. It gives a beautiful sheen, and is so easy to work with. I also went over the gold on the Target pumpkin with the liquid leaf, because the gold that it came with was too green. I poked a hole in the bottom of the head with a pencil, and stuck the stem of the bottom pumpkin in the hole. It worked great because it's foam.
I also painted this pumpkin blue, and gave it a gold stripe with the liquid leaf. I painted the stem gold as well.
I painted this pretty Cinderella pumpkin from Target, pink. I love how it adds to the overall display!
Makes for a perfect table top pumpkin patch, that actually matches my house!
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a Happy and Creative Day!
