Looking for a modern and stylish approach to Halloween décor? Skip the pumpkin brains and go for no-carve chalk paint pumpkins. They seamlessly match your modern farmhouse décor, and colour combinations are endless!
What You'll Need
■ Decorative or real pumpkins in various sizes and shapes
■ Chalk paint in your choice of modern colours
■ Metallic acrylic paint
■ Sponge brush
■ Small paint brush
■ Small bristle paint brush
- 1. Using the sponge brush, cover your pumpkin with a coat of chalk paint. Set aside to dry for at least 1 hour.
- 2. Add additional coats of paint until you reach your desired coverage; 3-4 coats should do the trick! Clean the brush with soap and water between coats.
- 3. Paint the pumpkin stems using metallic acrylic paint and the small paint brush. Let dry completely before handling.
- 4. Use your new décor pieces as part of a fall tablescape, or scatter them throughout the home! Your imagination is the only limitation.
