DIY Terracotta Pumpkin Tutorial

Recently I did a haul of terracotta pumpkins that I bought from Pottery Barn [HERE]. I LOVE them & they’re so nicely made & I’ve no regrets of shopping for them. The con to them? They are expensive! Although it was one factor I needed so as to add to our seasonal decor this 12 months, I do know it’s not in everybody’s seasonal decor funds although so I needed to make some DIY ones to point out how one can obtain an analogous search for much less. Here is how I made some DIY terracotta pumpkins that you are able to do to simply about any fake pumpkin you discover it doesn’t matter what materials it’s…

At the flea market this previous weekend I discovered a cement/clay/ceramic pumpkin that I cherished the look of, however I didn’t love the colour so I knew instantly it was one which I needed to do that DIY to. It’s really easy! All you want is a few paint, spray sealer [or spray paint], & some flour. Here is just a little step-by-step on the way to do it:

-Paint your pumpkin a terracotta coloration that you just love. I truly went with a darker coloration than the PB ones & I really like the aged look I like. I displayed the colours I obtained under for reference, however I primarily used the terracotta coloration. The paint coloration I used was Terra Cotta by Craft Smart (link).

Other possible Paint Colors: 452 Raw Sienna, 2559 Coffee Latte, 917 Yellow Ochre, 953 Camel, 942 Honeycomb

-Let the paint dry & collect up some flour…

-spray the pumpkin with a sealer or spray paint. KEY: Before it dries you need to throw the flour on the pumpkin & rub it in. You preserve rubbing the flour till it blends into the cracks.

-Rub the flour in getting it into all of the crevices/cracks

-Optional: you may seal yours, however I didn’t seal mine. Once the flour is rubbed in it’s actually in there to remain.

I really like that this undertaking can take a $5 pumpkin & make it appear like a pottery Barn discover. You may also use this method on so many alternative issues from lamps, jars, vases, & a lot extra. Get inventive & attempt it. Let me know in the event you do & what you consider it!!
