Easy fall decor- painted pumpkins

Easy DIY painted pumpkins | Meet the B's

Happy fall y'all! It makes me so happy that the weather is getting cooler and the leaves are starting to change color! I love fall! I especially love fall home decor!

This year, I have been trying not to focus too much on seasonal decor because I feel like I should devote the time to finishing our normal every day decor before I splurge on things that are displayed only temporarily. I've been using seasonal decor I already own or that I can make quickly and cheaply. 

Today, I'm sharing one of those super easy, affordable, quick decorations! Painted faux pumpkins! I bought some fake pumpkins and gourds at Michaels and added some color to match our living room. Seriously, it couldn't get any easier. I don't even have a tutorial for you because all I did was paint them. That's it. No secrets, no tricks, just paint. 

Our home is full of neutral colors and cooler tones. Don't get me wrong, I love warm colors! They just don't really go with my interior decor. So, I wanted to tone these bright orange pumpkins down a bit and help them blend in with the living room. I chose paint colors that match some of those neutral tones and added a little pop of color by matching our throw pillows!

The colors I used are Decoart's Chalky Finish in "Primitive," Ceramcoat acrylic paint in "Sea foam," and FolkArt's acrylic paint in "Teal."
I put them in this cute little basket I bought at Homegoods a long time ago. It normally holds our remotes and game controllers, but I convinced my hubby that those could be put away for the sake of the cute pumpkins ;)

  7. My Dollar Store has some very ugly colored ones that I must go grab now. These are so cute, they blend in well enough that they aren't "in your face" holiday decor, but stand out because of the pretty colors. :) -Kristina @ myownhomeblog.com
