    Let's Do This!


    Step 1:

    1. Cut a lid off of your pumpkin and scoop out the seeds and pulp. Make sure the exterior is dry and free of dirt.


    Step 2:

    1. 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.)


    Step 3:

    1. Spray paint the entire pumpkin with metallic spray paint – let dry.


    Step 4:

    1. 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.


    Step 5:

    1. 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.


    Step 6:

    1. 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.
