It may be hot here, but I am in the mood to do some fall crafting! I made these DIY Galvanized Pumpkins because I want to decorate my fall kitchen table with some galvanized items, and I want to put these galvanized pumpkins in my dough bowl.
I promise the dollar store is the best place to buy fall crafting supplies. The dollar store never disappoints!
When you are making something yourself, you can spend more on supplies than you would buy the item brand new, so I try to get my supplies as cheap as possible. The whole point of DIY is spending less!
I was so excited to see these large styrofoam pumpkins at the dollar store. I purchased three of them.
I spray painted the pumpkins black because I wanted a good base coat on them before I used my acrylic paint. You could spray paint the pumpkins gray but all I had was black spray paint.
I only applied one coat of gray because I wanted the paint to look dimensional instead of a solid color.
I dry brushed the metallic silver paint on the pumpkins. Dry brush means that you dip your brush in the paint and you wipe off almost all of the paint so that your strokes will look soft.
I love how the DIY galvanized pumpkins look. I have all my fall decor out of the attic and a few things already made so….. “Hurry up, fall”!
