This has been an unusual year. Because of the extremely wet Spring, Fall has been delayed. I had such a hard time finding regular orange pumpkins and there were absolutely no white pumpkins available anywhere. I have never used faux pumpkins before, but I didn’t want to wait until mid October to decorate so I decided to shop around for some. I was only able to find orange, green and gold. No problem! A little paint goes a long way. For my HomeRight post this month I’m sharing my tips on painting faux pumpkins and other small things with the Super Finish Max! I used these white painted pumpkins inside and out to add simple Fall touches.

White Painted Pumpkins
Make sure the items you are spraying are clean and that there isn’t any sticky residue from labels or price tags.
If the item you are spraying are lightweight, add some tape to the bottom to stick it to the surface you are painting on.
Protect the area around you from overspray. I like to use the pop-up small spray shelter. It literally pops open itself and is super easy to put away. It has a floor too which is so nice!
Tape off anything you don’t want to get paint on it. I wrapped the stems with painter’s tape.
Use a good paint that has a primer in it. The orange coloring on the pumpkins will bleed if you don’t have a good primer to stop it. I chose a warm off white color to mimic the color of real white pumpkins. I sprayed them with my Super Finish Max sprayer Super Finish Max sprayer from HomeRight.
I think the faux pumpkins look pretty good! And the best part is that I can use them again next year 🙂
One of my favorite Fall plants to use is flowering kale or ornamental cabbage. I like how they look in these old wooden crates.
I used skewers in the bottoms of the faux pumpkins to be able to stick them into the dirt in the window boxes.
I pulled out the petunias and other annuals that were spent, but kept the asparagus ferns. I added some flowering kale and filler plants.
I like to keep things simple in my outdoor decor so I think these painted white pumpkins are the perfect touch! I recently share my Fall home tour if you want to hop over and see my living room all spruced up!
Do you decorate for Fall? Inside, out, or both? I’d love to hear what your favorite thing to decorate with are!
