I had three ceramic pumpkins from Dollar Tree that I bought within the last 2 years. The first is a white ceramic and the second is brown ceramic.
The third is a little orange pumpkin. This year I really want very little orange in my home. That’s not really a color that fits my style as my living and dining areas are more coastal cottage with a modern influence. I started with the little orange pumpkin and painted it pink. After the pink dried, it was a little too pink. I added a whitewash of watered down white paint.
I then painted the bottom of the pumpkin and the leaf gold.
I dripped whitewash on the top line of the gold bottom. I added gold polka dots on the pink top and black accents on the leaf. When I put it in a vignette with gold jewelry, it really pops.
For the other two pumpkins, even though one was white, I painted both with white paint. I didn’t want a shiny finish of ceramic white. After several coats, I added gold touch ups and black accents on the leaves.
I added a strand of small pearls and it looks great.
The brown one was also painted white with gold and black around the leaves.
I made a vignette with my new chest of plants, candlesticks, and jewlery.
I will be using these little white pumpkins a lot in the next few years.
