Have you seen those neon orange fake pumpkins and nearly vomited because you wouldn’t dream of decorating with them. I mean, get real, everyone would know they were fake. Ah ha, but have you seen the price tags? $1 – $6? For that price you might just be willing to take a leap of faith with me, wouldn’t you? Awesome, because I’m going to show you how to faux paint a fake pumpkin so you can decorate with them year after year and hopefully fool your friends.
- Fake pumpkins
- Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (French Linen, Country Grey, Pure White, Versailles, Duck Egg)
- Acrylic craft paint – Brown and Green
- Sea sponge
- Stencil brush
- Medium round brush
- Fan brush
- Palette knife for mixing
- Container or palette for mixing
(Ignore the extra paint tubes and brushes above, the listed ones are all I used.)
Start by painting all the pumpkins with French Linen. Allow them to dry.
