I’m still in denial of the fact that fall is here. The only good things about this time of year are boots and fall decor (oh, and CANDY). I was trying to wait to do any fall decorating until October 1st, but I couldn’t wait to try a chevron painted pumpkin. It turned out being really easy. You just need a nice round (a taller one would have worked better) pumpkin and some masking tape. I used 1 1/2″ but you could use whatever width you want depending on the size of the stripe you’d like to achieve.
I just started my pattern using 3 1/2″ strips of tape and eyeballing the pattern. I wish I would have done three rows of tape rather than two- it would have made the finished product look better. Oh well.
There ya have it! We took some hydrangeas from my front yard and gave them a facelift with some gold spray paint. They had faded a bunch already so the muted colors with the gold turned out really pretty (and cheaper than cheap- free!).
