I’ve been inspired lately by all of the metallic fall decor I’ve seen in the Pottery Barn catalog. Since I’ve been adding industrial touches in my home, I thought I’d try my hand at some industrial-inspired fall decorations! I’m pleased with the way my Dollar General pumpkins transformed!
1. I picked up these fall decorations at the DG for $3 each. They had a mix of pumpkins, gourds, and pine cones…I think I’ll save the pine cones for some holiday decorating!
2. I used some blue painter’s tape to tape off the stems.
3. Next, I primed my gourds and pumpkins with some white spray paint primer.
4. To finish them off I chose several finishes. Shown is the metallic spray paint in “brushed nickel”.
I also used some “dover white” spray paint and hot glued on some snappy thingys I found in the clearance bin at Michael’s. A few of the pumpkins got finished in a glittery spray. I nixed the gourds…they looked weird.
I love how the pumpkins turned out! They go well with my brushed nickel finishes and industrial accessories. Now I just need to make some more for the mantel. And a few more for a kitchen table centerpiece. And some bigger ones for the front stoop…..Aren’t the possibilities endless?!?
