I like to paint my pumpkins by hand versus spray painting them. I choose an off white for these pumpkins. Since two of the pumpkins have short stems I am adding some real ones to them. I just cut off some of the stem and hot glued the natural stems on.
When I go to pick out real pumpkins I not only like to find interesting ones but they also need to have a nice stem. At the end of the season I pull off the stems and keep them to add to plastic pumpkins to give them a realistic look.
I didn't want just plain off white pumpkins so I am antiquing these. Since I might be using these outside I have sprayed them with a protective clear coat.
I also painted a couple more pumpkins but in two different oranges. They also started out the bright orange color and I added natural stems to these also.
Now for the finished pumpkins. First up is the white pumpkins.
And now the orange pumpkins.
The before and after side by side. I had two of each sizes of the orange pumpkins in the back so one of each went white and darker orange.
