DIY: Metallic Pumpkins!

Cheap, dollar store pumpkins...


transformed into stylish, metallic pumpkins!

What do you get when when you take cheap, orange pumpkins and give them a fresh coat of paint? You get fun, stylish and totally cool fall decor! I got various pumpkin shapes from the Dollar Tree and sprayed them with metallic silver paint (around $2 at Walmart). They end up looking like something you'd buy at Pottery Barn - very modern and chic! It's a wonder what a little paint will do :)
