This year's inspiration comes from my Elton Warhol. I didn't have it last year so, I thought this year I could tie some pumpkins in with it!
My fireplace :) I think those lamp shades might be a hair big, but I loved the lamps. I may look for inexpensive, smaller shades one day.
I have confessed many times that I am NOT good with crafty stuff. Sure, I can do it, but my free hand at painting, or anything for that matter, is pretty awful. So looking above, you can't tell how the stripes and dots don't look perfect. When you get close up, sure you can. Hopefully no one walks up to the fireplace to inspect, haha.
our sweet friend, Effie, painted the razorback pumpkin above. Love it!
I think my two favs, besides the razorback, might be the silver with hot pink dots and the black with the rhinestones. Clearly, you all probably realize I love me some polka dots! The rhinestones, my mom told/reminded me about.
Actually, above all, this is my favorite..
I used spray paint, acrylic paint & paint pens. Some of the pumpkins are real, but most are fake. I figure the fake ones I can save for next year. That does mean another 30 gallon storage container. Sorry, honey. Brent loves getting those down from the attic. If I spray painted the pumpkin, I covered the stem with foil. I did learn that glossy acrylic paint, looks better on these than non-glossy. Also, I did by a spray to spray on top of them all, but I've not done that yet. I think that's probably more important if they were going to be sitting outside.
Now, I'd love to see your pumpkins if you have posted about them! I'm adding a Mr. Linky. I've never done this before so hopefully I did it right :) Maybe I'll put my last years pumpkin post in to test it out.
