I painted some plastic pumpkins from the craft store the other day with Annie Sloan chalk paint and then added a little something extra with the finish coat. It was such an easy project and I already had the paint, so it was inexpensive too. Here’s how I did it:

I painted some cheap, plastic pumpkins the other day, with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  It was so easy, but I added a little something extra, so here’s what I did –>>

I cleaned the pumpkins with water and soap, to make sure the paint would stick well.  I used a cheap paintbrush that I bought at Michael’s crafts.

I just did it at my kitchen table over a paper plate.  The stems on the pumpkins were removeable so I removed them before I painted.  Some people would rather paint over the stems, so that’s an option too.  

I did one coat at a time, let it dry and then came back and did more.  Surprisingly, it took about 3-4 coats to get full coverage, for some reason it was taking more paint than normal for good coverage.  I used the color “Arles”.

Once I had complete coverage with the paint and the paint was dry. (I gave it about 45 min between coats)

Then, I took them out to the garage and sprayed the pumpkins with Krylon’s Glitter blast (Diamond Dust).  The glitter spray dried so quickly, so really even with paint them, they were done with only a few minutes of work, most of the time was just waiting time in between.  I love the way they turned out – Here are the pictures!
