Blue pumpkins

Don’t you just LOVE the blue ‘fairy tale’ pumpkins!

P1220722I can never seem to FIND the real ones to buy though.  sigh.

P1220720When I found these two ‘squatty’ metallic pumpkins on a recent thrift store run, I decided to try to make my own!

P1220724Craft paint to the rescue!

P1220723I gave them a couple of coats of my new shade of aqua paint, hand sanded a little bit and brushed some antiquing medium into the creases.

P1220721Not quite as subtle of a blue color as the real ones, but I love how they turned out.

P1220728I was going to keep them for myself, but I decided to take them to Farmhouse Rustic.

Hopefully I can find more of this shape of pumpkins to paint for myself!
