Heavy Metal

Gold. Silver. Bronze. Sophisticated enough to sit on the mantel or step in as a table arrangement. This year’s harvest gets the Midas touch.

Supplies:

  • Damp rag
  • Newspaper
  • Metallic spray paint, krylon.com


Instructions:
1. Make sure you're in a well-ventilated area and place newspapers on a flat surface. You'll want a smooth surface to spray, so remove any dirt with a damp rag.

 

2. Holding the pumpkin by the stem, spray the entire surface area until every inch is covered. Allow the pumpkin to dry, and then apply a second coat. Let dry for at least 24 hours. Note: The more coats you apply, the darker the color will appear.
