Happy Halloween! I wanted so share a quick DIY Floral painted pumpkin that will add some glam to your Halloween decor.
Step 1: Paint your pie pumpkin in one solid shade. I used an acrylic turquoise paint, but if you’re using a lighter shade, I recommend priming the pumpkin with white first. Repeat this step for 2-3 coats until the colour is solid.
Step 2: Take a light pink colour and paint on thick, large globs. This will become the base of your peony flowers. Let dry completely.
Step 3: Go over the base colour with a mix of your base flower colour and white. Keep the paint thick to add texture.
Step 4: Use a darker paint colour, mixed with some white to add more depth to the centre of the flowers.
Step 5: Go in with a yellow (or orange) with a thin paintbrush to create the centres of the flowers. I suggest using small oblong dabs or “C” shapes.
Step 6: Mix some forest green and white paint and paint on some leaves beside the flowers.
Step 6: Get some gold metallic paint and paint the stem of the pumpkin for a final glam touch!
There you have it! An easy, pretty glam DIY floral painted pumpkin! I love how this style can sit on my desk way past Halloween. It also makes a beautiful whimsical decoration for a birthday party.
