(1) Enamel metallic spray paint, which can be found at any hardware store. Painters tape, the size depends on your preference and how thick you want your lines, I went with a standard 1 inch size. Don’t worry about the paintbrush, I bought it for touch-ups but it’s unnecessary since we are using spray paint!
(3) At first I began taping on the actual pumpkin, this soon became difficult as the pattern started turning uneven. I just prepared a zig zag pattern on my coffee table and then transferred it onto the pumpkin. I used the bottom of a magazine and the bottom of my coffee table as a means to make sure the pattern stayed symmetrical.
To spray: I stood the pumpkin on a can of food and then sprayed the pumpkin with the gold metallic paint (this ensured I got most of the bottom of the pumpkin covered).
(4) Voila! As you can see, my chevron pumpkin is not by any means perfect, but it sure looks cute alongside the other metallic pumpkins, and definitely adds a chic, glamourous touch to this years Halloween and Fall decor.
A Halloween centerpiece: some skulls with candy corn filled in an apothecary jar, surrounded by gourds.
Happy Halloween decorating!
