The first step is to paint your pumpkins. I chose “Harvest Orange” Apple Barrel paint for my base color. Once that dried I took my sanding block and distressed my wood a bit.
Next I took my spouncer and added white polka dots to my small pumpkin. If you don’t have a spouncer you can certainly just free hand your dots.
While my small pumpkin dried I took my painter’s tape and taped off my stripes on my big pumpkin and then painted those white as well.
Once the paint dried i peeled off the tape. I then took my sanding block and distressed the pumpkins a little more until I got my desired look.
Next for the stem of the pumpkins I took a cinnamon stick and broke it in half and used half for each pumpkin, securing with hot glue. Not only does this look super cute but it also smells good!
Now, these are adorable just like this but to dress them up even more I decided to add a bow to mine. Shocker, right? HaHa
I simply took a few smaller pieces of burlap ribbon and raffia and tied up a cute little bow.
