– Ceramic pumpkin bags
– Spray paint
I was able to thrift a set of these ceramic pumpkin bags (there were so many at the store I went to!). If you can’t find something similar at your thrift store, you can also make the design by using clay. Just use cutters or a knife to make the pumpkin face shape.
For the spray paint colors, the off-white pumpkin ended up being my favorite because it looked the most like a natural marble. Have fun and experiment with the colors that match your decor though!
The lanterns were a bit dirty from the thrift store, so I had to remove all old stickers and clean the surface before I could begin. Definitely check out my
Once the surfaces were clean and dry, I went in and sprayed on my color. The lanterns were a bit too orange for my personal taste, so I decided to use softer shades for the color. It helps to wear gloves so that you can place a hand inside the lantern. This will help you get an even coat, all around, at the same time.
Wait for those to dry, then it’s time for the marble effect spray! This spray is a bit tricky, so practice before adding to your painted item. You’ll want to really shake the can and then spray at a bit of a distance. It also helps to lay the lanterns flat so that you can spray the marble effect from above. Walk around the surface ensuring you get different angles.
I’m going to fill these DIY Pumpkin Lanterns with faux candles on Halloween for our stoop and I can’t wait!
