A Little Pumpkin Facelift

Picked up this cute wood-look resin pumpkin at Walgreens the other day.

Nice as is, but it was a little chipped here and there.

Instead of touching up the chips, I decided to give a little facelift by changing it's color altogether.

I really like it.  
A new coat of paint topped with a coat of glaze gives it a nice, new look.  
I used a thin brown Sharpie to get into the letters to make the words stand out more.  

Think it might need a little raffia tie around the stem.

Today I'm going start unearthing some Christmas stored down in the basement.  
That's going to be a job!

Thanks for visiting!
Leave a comment so I can get to know you.

Great idea, Carla! It turned out wonderfully! This would be the time to get them, too. Everyone has their pumpkins on clearance now.

That pumpkin redo is brilliant!!

I pulled out the Christmas tree to move to the new house and jokingly said I should just set it must be rubbing off on

Have fun,

I love it - what a great new look! It's amazing how such a simple change can completely transform an object - now the words stand out more than ever. Love it!

I think that your pumpkin over-haul turned out great!

Good luck with the Christmas decoration recovery :)
I don't have the slightest idea where any of our stuff is.

Have a great week!!
