Halloween happened in the blink of an eye and it’s onto Thanksgiving now. It’s one of those sort of ambiguous holidays, decorating wise. How much more can you really do with pumpkins?
A little more, I’m telling you, just a little bit more.
We’re going to make cute spray painted silver pumpkins for Cheap Thanksgiving Decor.
If you have a few extra pumpkins from Halloween lying around, this craft is for you. Pumpkins are practically a dime a dozen around town right now, so go get a couple. Or four.
Here are the supplies you need:
- spray paint
Seriously folks, that’s it. Unless you’re spray painting on your kitchen table, then you might want some newspaper.
I got silver spray paint because it’s what we had in the garage, and I think it looks awesome.
Shake up your spray paint and spray the pumpkin.
It just doesn’t get easier than this.
Spray at least 6″-8″ inches away from the pumpkin so it doesn’t get all drippy on you.
I painted on an upside down bucket outside on my lawn.
Repeat on as many pumpkins as you have. Spray paint the night away.
See how the bottoms are still orange? Leave them alone while they dry, don’t make the mistake *AHEM* of rolling them over to get the bottoms.
Once they’re dry, roll them over, paint the bottoms, and let the paint dry for about 24 hours.
Decorate your house.
Seriously? Seriously. It’s that easy.
You could go one step further and sprinkle them with glitter, if you wanted to get all fancy on me. But I think this is the easiest, and therefore best, Thanksgiving decor out there.
