Gilded Pumpkins

This morning I gilded the pumpkins. The bottom one I used a brush and gold paint. The top one I ragged the gold paint on, used a foam stamp for the red leaves and a wine cork dipped in tan paint for the dots. To finish them off I added some leftover garland from my decoupage pumpkin project.

I liked stacking them - it was kind of fun. I'm not sure if the color of the urn is quite right. I might paint it. What do you think?

The rest of the porch is still undone. I have ideas but lack time right now. Lots of large projects so I'll give updates as I can. Painting the pumpkins was fun and a good way to get in some "creative play". I need that to keep going!
