Harvest Pumpkin Vase

What You’ll Need:

  • Pumpkin – Medium Size
  • Gold Metallic Spray Paint
  • ArtSkills Acrylic Paint set
  • ArtSkills Paint Palette
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Fake Flowers, Pine Cones and fall décor
  • Marker
  • Paper towels
  • Spoon and Knife for carving and scooping pumpkin

Let’s Do This!

Step 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:

Using a marker, free hand a swirl design and carefully trace over it with the hot glue gun. (Be sure to remove any stray glue strings before proceeding)

Step 3:

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

Step 4:

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:

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:

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.
