As seen on TV today, here is how to make a pumpkin centerpiece for fall!
These pumpkin centerpieces glam up any table top, and is the perfect addition to a fall dinner party decor, AND your thanksgiving table!
For this project you will need:
- A pumpkin
- glass vase that fits inside your pumpkin
- sharp knife
- Painters tape
- Spray paint (I chose gold for this project but you can choose any color you want!)
*KEEP IN MIND THAT PUMPKINS THAT ARE CUT AND SPRAYPAINTED HAVE A SHORT TERM LIFE SPAN
On a durable surface, using a sharp knife, cut a hole on the top of the pumpkin and scoop out the guts and seeds.
Clean the outside of the pumpkin and let dry.
Using the painters tape, create a design.
*for this design, I used scissors and cut out random 'dips' and formed it around the pumpkin. I then added more tape below the design to make sure the spray paint did not touch the lower part of the pumpkin.
Go outside and place the pumpkin on a flat surface (I used a piece of a large box). Spray the paint onto the pumpkin. Two coats might be needed.
Your pumpkin will look like this!
Now for the fun part! Once the paint dries SLOWELY peel the tape off.
Now you are ready to add your vase full of flowers!
ENJOY THE PUMPKINS ON A TABLE TOP OR FRONT PORCH!
And a friend will love one as a gift!
*to create the stripe on the pumpkin to the left, I spray painted it black, then when dry, holding the gold spray paint, I created vertical lines until I had the width I wanted.
