Framed Pumpkin

If you have been to a dollar store lately, you will find pumpkins by the dozens! Well,I just had to pick up some and see what I could make with them.

I took a box cutter, but almost anything will work. It’s made of really thin Styrofoam, and thankfully, it doesn’t make a big mess when you cut in half. I then took one of the pieces I cut and painted with a off white spray paint.

Remember that tip I told you a while back? If you want your final color to pop…spray item white first. When it was dry….

I sprayed it with Rustoleum Metallic Gold…

I just love this spray paint!! I have used this in many projects. As the pumpkin was drying, I took a frame and it’s cardboard, and painted them both with black spray paint.

I took a piece of black material and cut it big enough to cover the cardboard and left a little on all 4 sides to fold behind. I then hot glued the sides to the back. I as thinking while I was making this….It would look really pretty with black tulle covering the material.When it was all dry…I glued the pumpkin inside the frame…I added some acorns..(I halved them also) and a pretty leaf. This is what the final project looks like….

    1. Yes, love that it is finally starting to cool down…nice! Thank you for looking at the framed pumpkin. It just sparkles! The light reflects off the metallic paint. Such a inexpensive craft.

    1. Hi Grace. The white paint didn’t completely cover all the little indentations in the pumpkin. That is where you see the orange coming through a little bit. It was completely covered with the Gold Metallic Paint…on the finished pumpkin…the orange you see is just a reflection of a runner it’s sitting on. That’s what I love about this pumpkin.The metallic paint bounces the light off it….so pretty. I just love this paint!
