I recently held a little party at my house. One of my guests saw these DIY word pumpkins displayed outside and the first thing they said to me was, “Wow, you are already ready for the holidays?!”
I honestly had them out because I had made them that same day for you guys and didn’t see the point in putting them away. Plus, they turned out pretty cute, so I was eager to show them off.
I do love decorating though, and this year I have decided to add a little twist to the traditional fall and Halloween colors. So I painted these pumpkins with terracotta and mint spray paint. Two colors I’m really loving right now.
Now let’s talk about terracotta spray paint. If you checked out my recent post on how to make terracotta pinch pots then you know I think we will be seeing a lot more of this warm brown hue during the fall season.
This spray paint is going to come in super handy when you want to up-cycle something in a fresh hue. It adds more than just color; it changes the whole texture of what you’re painting! It can make anything look like it’s been molded from terracotta clay!
Pumpkins + terracotta = really cute and unique Halloween decorations you will want to show off too! Let’s get to making!
Supplies for decorating pumpkins
Terracotta spray paint (I got mine here)
Mint satin spray paint
Hot glue gun
Step one: Holding the terracotta spray paint about a foot away, begin spray painting the pumpkin with the first coat. Then repeat until the pumpkin is coated evenly. Repeat this step with the mint paint.
Step two: Spray the wood letters to match the pumpkin you will be gluing them to. Let dry.
Step three: Glue the letters to the pumpkins.
Step four: Touch up the pumpkins with spray paint if needed.
