I wanted some cute front door decor, but I always look for ways to save money, so I made some DIY terracotta textured pumpkins. It was easy and quick; most of the time was spent waiting for them to dry! Break out the pumpkin rolls, people, because fall has begun!
Pumpkins – Mine were from Target, and they’re linked below –
Step 1 – Prime the pumpkins with spray paint. Just one even layer will do.
Step 2 – I mixed a 1:1 ratio of paint and baking soda and used that mixture to paint my pumpkin. While it was still wet, I sprinkled a generous amount of baking soda all down the sides and patted it into the paint. Do one pumpkin at a time, and make sure you’re wearing gloves.
Step 3 – There is no step 3 because you’re done!
For one of the pumpkins, I combined both colors, so I’ve got three different colored pumpkins. They look much cuter than what I brought home off the Target shelves!
