Autumn gourds and pumpkins create a classic canvas for a festive centerpiece. Use metallic paint to pump up the glamour and you’ll create something inspired by nature and truly unique.
Create a Gilded Fall Centerpiece
- Pour paint into small, plastic drinking cups for easy set up and disposal. Lay out a drop cloth so you have room to paint and to lay out the pumpkins and gourds to dry.
- Paint directly on each pumpkin or gourd either in a decorative design or by covering the entire pumpkin. Small brushes give you better control over the paint,
- Let the paint dry. Then, turn the pumpkins or gourds over and paint the bottoms.
- Mix an array of pumpkin and gourd shapes, sizes and colors for a more visually creative and interesting display.
