So I found an awesome wooden tray at Home Goods and wanted to use it as a centerpiece. I’m on a pumpkin craze, but I don’t particularly like to use them indoors. I just struggle decorating with orange! I went to Michael’s to look for some white pumpkins but all they had were large ones. I found a bag of small pumpkins that I decided would be easy to paint!
I used white and aqua chalk paint, annie sloan clear wax and dark wax.
I painted several pumpkins in white and several in the aqua color. Once they were dry, I brushed on clear wax, wiping any excess wax off. I then followed up with the dark wax and wiped off most of it to get the look I was going for. When using annie sloan dark wax, you must use clear wax first or the dark wax will be hard to wipe off.
I then added a few pine cones and snipped some berries from my crepe myrtles. I painted the candle sticks using the same chalk paint method and added the candles I found at Hobby Lobby. I’m pleased with it! So much better than orange! Check out my other pumpkin projects here and here!
