I love holidays, but I’m not always festive when it comes to decorating. My home aesthetic can best be described as NEUTRAL.
So, the bright and colorful decorations that come with Halloween, Christmas, Easter and every other holiday don’t really vibe with my interior.
The project was much easier than I anticipated. It’s the kind of DIY that you really can’t mess up!
You’ll need a few different sized pumpkins (I found mine at the Dollar Tree, but Target and Walmart also carry them).
I chose a gold spray paint and black acrylic paint for the drips. But, I think white would also look great as a base color. And if you’re a colorful person, the sky’s the limit!
It took two coats of gold spray paint to coat the pumpkins. I let them thoroughly dry before I added the drips.
Start at the top and squeeze big dots of paint every so often. If you need to, tilt the pumpkin to help the paint drip down.
I used paper towels underneath the pumpkins, because some drips will go all the way to the bottom of the pumpkin.
Let them dry overnight and start decorating!
