Pumpkins are awesome and cheap decor during the fall. But are you looking for something a little bit different to make your pumpkins stand out from the rest? I thought so. Well peoples -- I've got a solution. This is the easiest thing to make your holiday decor a little unique. All you need is pumpkins, newspaper and paint! I went with white because if I'm being honest, I was feeling a little lazy and didn't want to go out and buy gold paint (what I really wanted to do)....but I like the way the white came out and it's very crisp against the bright orange. All you have to do is dip half of the pumpkin into paint, and let it dry for about 24 hours on newspaper.
Really this is my way of saying, there are no rules! Get out the paint and go crazy. You can paint the whole pumpkin white, then dip half in gold or whatever color of your choosing! It's easy, fun and makes for some great decoration for a mantle or a porch.
Happy pumpkin painting!
