Now that Halloween is over it’s a good time to buy Halloween decor at discount prices. I grabbed a few foam craft pumpkins at Walmart for half price; scrounged up a few old cups in my kitchen cabinets, I used freebies we got from Bubba Gump, Spaghetti Factory, and Circus Circus; picked up metalic spray paint, ribbons, and dried foliage; and made centerpieces for my dining tables. It’s a great and inexpensive way to use pumpkins for Thanksgiving!
The whole project didn’t take long to make, the longest part was waiting for the paint to dry. It’s amazing what you can do with a couple cans of spray paint, some ribbon, and dried leaves!
Gather your materials:
Spray paint – I used metalic gold and silver, but you can use whatever color you want
Spray paint your pumpkins and glassware. Spray 6″ away from the item you are painting, otherwise paint will run.
Foam pumpkins will need 2-3 coats of paint. Wait for it to dry before adding additional coats.
Be sure to spray paint the lip and inside of glassware.
