{antiqued pumpkins}

I wanted to do something different for my front-porch pumpkins this year, and I remembered all the white pumpkins that I have seen all over the place!! So, I took out my trusty Rustoleum white spray paint, favorite stain (Minwax...Provincial), and of course, some ribbon. I love when I can finish projects with things I have around the house!

After I had finished them, I discovered these pumpkins, done by Shanty2chic, using pumpkins they purchased. I love that idea too...since you can use them again.


-white spray paint
-dark stain
-soft, lint-free cloth or towel
-painters tpe


-Tape off the stem with painters tape.
-Spray pumpkin with paint, let dry.
-Using the cloth, carefully cover the pumpkin with the stain. Don't rub too hard---the paint will come off easily. If some comes off, that's okay--it adds to the distressed look. You just don't want too much coming off. Let dry.
-Remove tape, add ribbon!
