Happy fall! Now that the season is officially underway, I’ve been switching out my light and airy summer decorations for those richer, deeper fall colors and cozy textures. I’ve got an easy DIY for you today that is a great way to add some fall to your home! Today I’m going to show you how to make a gorgeous gold pumpkin DIY vase filler that’s perfect for adding to your vases of silk flowers or for nestling candles into a glass hurricane jar.
- Darice Small Pumpkins (Diamond Gem Pumpkins and Glass Gem Pumpkin Assortment would also look great as vase filler as-is or spray painted gold).
- Gold Spray Paint.
- Darice Glass Vase
- Darice Fall Flowers.
Step 1. Find a cardboard box that’s not too tall that you can paint in. The small pumpkins that you’ll be using as your DIY vase filler tend to roll a bit when you paint them, so this will help keep them contained. Spread out the pumpkins somewhat evenly in the box.
Step 2. Spray paint the pumpkins in your box outside, starting a couple of feet away from the pumpkins, and moving in closer slowly. If you get too close, the pumpkins will roll from the force of air from the spray paint, so don’t get too close. Apply one coat and let the pumpkins dry.
Now your gold pumpkin DIY vase filler is ready for its big debut in a clear glass vase or a candle hurricane or bowl. These are such an easy, yet gorgeous way to add some pretty gold fall accents to your home! If you have some of your mini pumpkins left over after this project, consider using them in this DIY fall produce truck project. Happy crafting!
