This year I decided it was essential to embrace Halloween with a bit of gilded pumpkin goodness. I recently discovered the wonders of Martha Stewart crafts paint and I experimented with a few colors to make a gradient effect on a simple kraft pumpkin. It really is a simple project, but the resulting product is filled with wow.
Martha Stewart Metallic Acrylic craft Paint in three shades (available at Michaels or Amazon)
Kraft pumpkin (I found mine at Michaels)
Immediately start on your second midtone color so that its easier to blend the colors. Brush in up and downward motions across the middle and up towards the top.
Show us your pumpkins! We would love to see what you come up with!
