So, yesterday, we put pantyhose on some cheap plastic pumpkins; today, we're gonna paint 'em up!
Because that's how we roll.
All you're going to need today is:
4 plastic jack-o-lantern treat totes
A sharp knife
Dollar Tree ivy garland
Black gloss spray paint
Silver spray paint
First, cut the face out of the pumpkin using a sharp knife, then give it a light coat of plastic primer. Allow this to dry for an hour. Go make some apple crisp while you're waiting.
Then give your pumpkins a good thorough coat of gloss black.
Get the inside too.
Give your ivy a misty spritz of silver, letting some of the green show through.
You will probably never see me type the following instruction again: give the pumpkins a thick, runny, sloppy final coat of black.
Sprinkle glitter liberally into the wet paint.
Get it everywhere, and allow the whole mess to dry.
Working in small sections, use hot glue to attach the ivy around the top rim of the pumpkin.
And we have some sparkly front porch goodness for next to nothing!
We used candles in glass cups for these.
I know, I know, the porch needs painting. What doesn't?
