~ Halloween Decorating, White Pumpkin - Black Pumpkin? Yes, Please


Have you had fun visiting all the Halloween Blog Party sites? I'm about half way through, I think. If you run into a few that don't have many Halloween pictures or a post, just keep going. I started at the end and now working my way up the list. Usually people start at the top and don't make it to the bottom. So be sure to visit the ones on the end, too!

How-to:
The little pumpkins were either green or orange ones that I bought years ago. I liked the shape and I'm really looking for ways to reuse anything so I don't add to the garbage in the world.

These are the foam ones that are so cheap.
The secret is Fusion Spray Paint. Fusion is made for painting plastic, but I have found that it is one of the best all around paints. I've painted wrought iron outside and it holds up very well. It is also excellent on wood.
(They are not shiny, it's just the light from the window.)

  1. These look fabulous, Donna.

    We used fusion paint on our all weather "wicker", this summer. It's great!

  4. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing.
    I love buying at thrift stores so this would work perfectly if I found one with a great shape but bad paint job.
