I have had a bunch of people asking “hey – when’s your next blog post? Did you die?”
So here I am! Having two jobs and being a student takes up a lot of time. Who knew?
If you live in Winnipeg you know that we have been blessed with the most amazing fall weather.
Like, seriously amazing.
So today I decided to take advantage of my first day off in 8 days to start some fall crafts! And I will share with you what I did!
I have a dinner that I am planning for next week (post to follow) and if you know me you know I loveeee to host.
I wanted to find some pretty fall decor that I could spread on the table and around the house to set the fall scene. So, I hit up my local Headingly fruit and veggie store and grabbed as many fall items I could find. Which included 15 mini pumpkins. Yes 15. Which I decided to paint.
Painting your pumpkins is an awesome way to add a little bit of colour to your table or fall set up. It just adds a little pop! As soon as I got the pumpkins home I gave them a good wash and scrub in the sink – and dried them off with paper towels. When painting pumpkins, I recommend (if they’re small enough) holding them by the stem and starting on the bottom. Otherwise – it is a bit difficult to manoeuvre your way around in order to get all angles. The paint I used was Martha Stewart Crafts Metallic Gold.
Then you just leave them to dry, give them a second coat, drying round 2, and there you go! This is a really simple, fun craft, and a great way to spend a gorgeous afternoon. As for the end result, they turned out perfectly! Stay tuned for my post about the dinner decor to see how I used them!
How are you decorating this fall!? Share your craft ideas.
