It's almost Thanksgiving, but to be honest, I'm kind of over all of the orange. I love pumpkins though, so I wanted a super simple centerpiece that still says Fall, but is pretty and sweet. I decided to paint one of my foam pumpkins and make this sweet Painted Faux Pumpkin Planter. Here is how I did it...
I had this pumpkin planter that I decorated along with some other fabulous pumpkins...you can find those HERE! I took the washi tape off, removed the faux sunflowers, and decided to paint it my favorite color...aqua!
First I painted it a with a thin coat of white to cover up all of the orange.
Next, I painted it with two coats of La Craie from Mason Blanche that I had left over. Once the paint had dried, I rubbed on some clear wax, then buffed it with a soft cloth.
I added a bunch of faux hydrangeas and sat it in the middle of my table, and couldn't be happier! It's simple, understated and just perfect!
So...are you still decorating and crafting for Fall, or have you moved on to Christmas?
