And just like that, fall is here. As the leaves change to rich tones of amber, rusty golds and deep reds, and the breeze gets cooler by the day, I can't help but think 'OMGAWD WINTER IS COMING!" Since I'm not quite ready to say hello to this colour palette or farewell to summer, I decided to celebrate Autumn with just that in mind. Its still all sunshine and flowers here my friends.
To paint these lovely little floral pumpkins, I picked up some craft paint from the dollar store. Its really easy to work with, washes out of most things and you can't beat the price. One of the most important things about painting is your colour palette. I always line up my paints and see how they look together and then stick within my selection. I painted a solid colour coat on both pumpkins and then I practiced a few different flower styles on some paper before committing to my actual pumpkin. For this project in particular I do like that the flowers don't look perfect. Its gives it a warm arts and craft vibe.

Always love to see what you're up to #ladyhayesdiy
