Faux Fun Pumpkins!





Here are some of the faux pumpkins that will be used for our "Fall Blessings" party that we host at our home. Church members, friends, and family attend and we have lots of food and fellowship. My main tablescape will be on my dining room table. The other two will be on the sun porch and sun room. I just painted this so the greenery and stems have not been finished. The two bottom on the right are tissue paper covered because they were not in the best condition. The white ones were just spray painted and a sealer to make them shiny. The silver are my favorite! Valspar makes the best silver metallic spray paint I have ever used! This was the first coat, then I used hammered metal from a can that was about empty and this is where the specks come from. They are not Pottery Barn, but they are close. I do plan to do more using foil, which really makes them look like Mercury Glass. Thank you for visiting!. Fall is such a fun time to decorate and a kick off for the holiday season coming up. Blessings to you, have a wonderful day!
Please check out Metamorphosis Monday over at Between Naps on the Porch!

Okay, so I love the silver pumkins that look kinda of like mercury glass. I think I'll be looking for some new pumkins to redo. Thanks for stopping by In His Grip.
