Are you getting excited for fall yet? These beautiful neutral pumpkins by Dominique from The White Cottage Blog will help get you in the mood! She used Sage Advice, Simplicity, and Vanilla Frosting for this project.

I bought some craft pumpkins a few years ago at Michael’s and I used them in my decor as they were up until now. This year when I took them out, I decided to try my hand at painting a few of them to see how that would turn out.

I used some of the Country Chic paint in Sage Advice that I had on hand and I added a little grey and black craft paint to it just to have varying shades to give the pumpkins some depth and texture. I started with painting them in one shade, then I used the darker shade to add depth to the creases and finally I used a little of the Simplicity and Vanilla Frosting paints to add some highlights and a very light speckle. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the paint adhered to the pumpkins without me having to do any sanding or use any primer.

Dominique {The White Cottage Blog}

I’m a self-proclaimed DIYer and I developed a passion for home decor as an adult. Nowadays, we’re fortunate to have the little Instagram community where we can interact with other decor lovers and share our own little adventures. It is by no means a professional business and unfortunately it’s not my day job, but it’s more than a hobby and it’s what takes up most of my free time. It all started with a little blog and it grew into whatever it’s become over the last year.
