Black & White Pumpkins

Black & White Pumpkins

I took regular orange plastic pumpkins from Michaels and painted them with about three coats of white craft paint.  he were inspired by a magazine article I saw.

  • Off With Your Head - Black velvet ribbon secured to the pumpkin with pearl tipped straight pins.
  • Paisley - Puffy paint and sticky crystals combine to make a paisley pattern.
  • Fleur di Lis - I painted a fleur di lis stamp with black craft paint and stamped it on.  Might add some sticky crystals for bling.

All of these pumpkins have their stems painted with grey wall paint.  They are sitting on a small part of my collection of silver and crystal. (Can't seem to understand why the photo will only upload sideways).

Pattern or design used: My own design - Paisley Penguin
