The Images that started it all

These may have been some of the first pictures I found that made me think - I want to try to make that! I didn't make them last year because gilding can be pretty hard to find and a bit pricey, but this year, after studying paint so much from moving to my new home, I found an EASY alternative.

My secret:  SPRAY PAINT!  I didn't get crazy on designs this year, because spray painting itself is a new thing to me, but I still love my copper pumpkins!


  1. these pumpkins are at your house?

  2. Haha, these are definitely not mine. I spray painted mine a solid copper color. It was only my 2nd time spray painting ever, and was not ready to get fancy with the paint. Maybe next year?
