Easy DIY Stone Pumpkins

After Halloween last year, I purchased some craft pumpkins on clearance. They looked really fake and inexpensive, but for $3-5 a piece, I couldn’t leave them behind. I knew they would be great candidates for an upgrade!

Easy DIY Stone Pumpkins

Since I had so many craft pumpkins, I decided to use two different colors of stone- Bleached Stone and Sienna Stone.

Supplies needed:

Craft pumpkins

Rust-Oleum white spray paint

Rust-Oleum Stone Creations Spray in (I used Bleached Stone for some pumpkins and Sienna Stone for others)

The first step is to spray the pumpkins white. The Stone Creations Spray doesn’t leave an opaque color behind, so spraying the pumpkins white beforehand will make the stone really pop.

Be sure to use the spray paint in a well ventilated area. Let the pumpkins dry throughly.

Next, it’s time for the Stone Creations Spray. I’ve never used spray paint like this before. It’s really unique!  Instead of being a flat color, it’s a textured, multi-toned finish. It really does resemble stone!

Keep moving the can while you are spraying so the paint doesn’t run. You can create a light stone finish or a more opaque one depending on how much paint you spray. If you are applying multiple coats, let the paint dry between each coat.
