Funky Ombre Pumpkins

October 1, 2012 |  by  |  Blog, DIY, Fall, Home & Decor

Remember last years Funky Pumpkins? I decoupaged them. This year, I thought I’d try something different and came up with these two designs. A geometrical pattern and a nice fresh ombre paint.


How to make the triangle pattern is obvious, so I am only going to explain a little, how to make the ombre effect.


1: Spray paint the pumpkin white (as a base).

2: Paint the bottom with the darkest hue. Pink in my case.

3: Paint the center orange. Next, paint the 3rd section with your lightest color, white.

4: Blend the colors together with a slightly wet cotton ball , until areas and lines bleed together.




Oh, have you seen this? Sooo cute!

This is it for today! Hope you like;-)
