Hello friend! I'm going to keep this short and sweet because I have a new video tutorial to share with you! I bought three small pumpkins from Kroger and painted them with copper paint. 

I dry brushed a little white chalk paint for some added dimension, and I couldn't be happier with the results! The color is rich and saturated and a little bit glam. These little pumpkins will star in my simple fall dining room decor, and then I can just toss them! Just look at that reflection!

If you want to create permanent copper pumpkins, just purchase small faux pumpkins from Walmart or the dollar store and follow the same instructions in the video!

Here are the supplies you'll need:

  1. your little pumpkins are adorable in their little wooden pumpkin bowl, of which I just love by the way. I see wooden bowls at thrift stores and can't help but not bring them home with me.
    Don't you just love the metallic paints. I had just used the gold metallic & sprayed painted some little pumpkins as well.
    Enjoy the day & have a great week end.
