Heirloom pumpkins are so charming with their shapes and colors.
And the grey/blue color of Cinderella pumpkins,
are some of my favorites.
I love mini pumpkins too.
The colors of minis are a little limited, great as they are.
I thought I'd change up some minis
with a chalk paint I've been wanting to try.
I picked up these cute little pumpkins
and some Americana chalk paint.
The 2 oz. bottle is just the right size to try out the paint,
without a big expense.
Make sure your pumpkin surface is clean and dry.
This cream color is called Whisper.
After one coat, you can still see some of the dark pumpkin stripes.
I mixed a some of this chalk paint with Americana acrylic Marigold.
Just gives it that perfect yellow tint.
Here are how all the colors turned out:
1.this is the mix of Whisper and acrylic Marigold
2. Vintage (a blue/grey with a green tint)
3. this one isn't painted, just natural white!
Chalk paint is so easy to use.
I'm defiantly going to have to use it on another project.
Now to display these beauties!
Find a container.
I've been searching for years for a long wooden bowel
and recently found this one at Marshals. Score!
Pick up some floral moss at the dollar store.
Arrange your pumpkins.
Love the muted colors.
They fit right in with my living room.
So excited for this arrangement to display this Fall.
