Hand painted floral pumpkin



I hope you’ve had a great week so far!  It’s been an exciting week around here. We made great progress in the kitchen and our counter tops got installed just a few hours ago!
I can’t wait to share our new kitchen with you. We still have lots to do, and since our downstairs is a complete mess, I decided that this month’s Michaels Maker’s challenge was going to be dedicated to Bella’s room. I’m loving the way this craft pumpkin adds a very subtle touch of fall . It’s almost like summer and fall colliding.




A few months ago I shared THIS video and used a similar process when creating this pumpkin. The only difference is that I used a paint brush instead of a credit card.
I used DecoArt chalky finish to paint the backdrop and then various DecoArt acrylic paints.

Blue and pink are one of my favourite combos and touching a touch of gold just makes it even more pretty don’t you think?


I love that these craft pumpkins can be customized to suit any decor style or color .

Fun right?

    Hello! This is so beautiful! I’d love to give it a go…is it a real pumpkin? Dumb question? I’m in Australia and we don’t really do the pumpkin thing!

    I’m swooning over this stunning pumpkin. Do you happen to sell them? I will purchase this exact one from you. I really need it in my life! Happy Fall!
