I haven’t done a whole lot of Fall decorating this year. BUT, I have seen Copper Glazed Faux Pumpkins that I would like to incorporate into our home decor.
I thought it would be fun to try and make my own.
To start off with, I removed the stem from a faux pumpkin and painted it solid copper.
*The paint brand is Krylon and the color is “Foil Metallic, Copper”.
It was trial and error as I created a Copper Glazed Faux Pumpkin. I wanted a soft, mist of the copper paint. Not gloppy. (Is that a word?)
I used a few faux pumpkins that I bought from Big Lots or the Dollar Store years ago. You can see how I painted them here.
And to add the metallic splatters, I had to carefully spray the top and sides, evenly.
Hmmm…I finally got the idea of taking out the tiny piece that helps the paint come out evenly, out. (As shown in the picture above.)
Now, my Copper Glazed Faux Pumpkin would have the style and look I was hoping for.
It was SO much easier once the red piece was removed from the spray can.
To finish it off, the copper painted stem was just it needed.
Wow! Super cute and SO cheap. Since I already had the pumpkins and the paint. It just took a little time. This was a quick project, but I also needed to take it slow to get my Copper Glazed Faux Pumpkin just right.
I hope you try this method to make your own style pumpkins for your Fall decor. I might even try it on a real pumpkin, if I get a chance.
P.S. I will be sharing my vintage book page wreath and centerpiece in my next post. (Yay)
Make it a lovely day!
