Did anyone else see the October cover of Country Living Magazine? I love it! The chevron pattern has been so popular this year and I have been looking for small ways to incorporate it into our house. What better way than painted pumpkins? Obviously, the designers for Country Living spent a good deal of time perfectly aligning their chevron pattern (and it turned out beautiful). I chose a simpler approach by using wider tape and it took me less than 15 minutes from start to finish. I think this would be an excellent Fall project for kiddos (with supervision of course…unless you like spray painted grass and clothing…)!
The supplies are easy and simple. I would venture to say most of us have all of this on-hand: 1. A Pumpkin (of course) 2. Spray Paint 3. Painter’s Tape
As I mentioned, I used wide tape and a very easy chevron pattern. You could use thinner tape and get super creative. The sky is the limit!
I sprayed a medium layer of paint onto the pumpkin. It probably could have used another thin coat, but I intended to leave this guy on the porch so it didn’t have to be perfect.
I let the pumpkin dry in the sun for maybe 5 minutes before peeling the tape off.
How cute is that? I love seeing it on the porch as I pull into the driveway. What fun crafts do you have planned for the Fall? I can’t wait to share my next DIY project with you…and I am always open to new and creative ideas!
