Let's Do This!
Cut a lid off of your pumpkin and scoop out the seeds and pulp. Make sure the exterior is dry and free of dirt.
Using a marker, free hand a swirl design and carefully trace over it with the hot glue gun. (Once glue is dry and cool, be sure to remove any stray glue strings before proceeding.)
Spray paint the entire pumpkin with metallic spray paint – let dry.
Mix acrylic paints together to create a light minty-green color and brush over the entire pumpkin in sections so the paint does not dry completely for the next step.
While the paint is still wet, use a paper towel to partially rub the paint off, revealing the gold underneath. You can add variation and create a more realistic “patina” by removing more or less paint in different areas.
Arrange flowers in your Harvest Pumpkin Vase to your liking. For added sparkle, dust some pine cones with glitter and add them to your arrangement.
