So I saw this adorable pin on Pinterest (yes I am on it, yes I am addicted)….courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens….and decided I need to make “candycorn pumpkins” for my front steps.
The description says the pumpkins are spray painted….and I have about 2,187 cans of spray paint in my basement….so I went to work.
I think it’s wise to paint the bottoms first. Notice my cute little helper in the background watching.
Unfortunately……I way oversprayed…..and it ran everywhere. Note to self: SEVERAL THIN coats of paint work best. Every painter knows this. Duh…..
Then I flipped the pumpkins right side up….
And tinfoiled the stems ‘cuz I didn’t want those painted.
I didn’t like the overspray that the spray paint was leaving. I thought the BH&G pumpkins had a crisper transition between colors…… so I decided to tape off a paint line. Tthat looked ridiculous (see above).
So I went back to spray painting them.
And think they look ok from a distance.
Especially when the camera is tilted.
I’m just not sure how BH&G did it. Thoughts???
