How to Make a Camouflage Fall Pumpkin
The autumn colors in this Camouflage Fall Pumpkin make it the perfect accessory from fall harvest through Thanksgiving. Anyone can paint a paper mache pumpkin and attach floral gems, but if you want to make the project your own, customize it by coordinating your colors to your home decor.
Paint white basecoat
Paint the pumpkin with a white basecoat. Let dry completely.
Paint pumpkin & stem
Paint the pumpkin using mushroom colored paint, then paint the stem avacado. Let dry completely.
Brush some areas of the stem with burnt umber paint in a camouflage style.
Glue on gems
Use a combination of E6000 and hot glue to attach gems onto pumpkin.
