Supplies you’ll need to make your own Autumn Splendor Pumpkin Décor:
- Pumpkin Cutout
- Oyster All-In-One Mineral Paint
- OS Dixie Belle Brush
- Chocolate Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Drop Cloth Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Artist Tool Set
- Detail Tool
- Autumn Splendor Chalk Couture Transfer
- Tide Chalkology Paste
- Peachy Keen Chalkology Paste
- Bright White Chalkology Paste
- Bark Chalkology Paste
- Dune Chalkology Paste
- Papaya Chalkology Paste
- Sanding Block
- Foam Brush
To start, paint the entire surface of the wood pumpkin cutout with the color Oyster.
Once dry, lightly sand the surface to give it a bit of a distressed feel.
Then, mix the colors Chocolate and Drop Cloth to create a custom shade for the stem. Use a sponge brush to paint the stem portion of the cutout.
Then use that same custom shade to add some “distressing” to the edges of the pumpkin.
Once dry, it’s time to add the transfer details.
Begin by applying the transfer to the surface of the pumpkin. Then, add the paste colors to each section of the transfer. For the small details on this project, I used the Artist Tool Set and Detail Tool from Chalk Couture.
I started with the color Tide because it’s the one that will be used the most.
PRO TIP: When adding paste colors, be sure to move pretty quickly. You don’t want any portion of the paste to dry before you can remove the transfer.
Then, start adding the rest of the paste colors to the appropriate areas of the transfer.
You can see below how I used the Detail Tool on those small hard to reach details.
Once all of the colors have been applied, remove the transfer to reveal the final look.
This pillow was my color inspiration. I think the final product compliments it so well.
The final piece can be displayed on an easel as seen below or you can add a hook or piece of twine for hanging.
You can also add some embellishments like the raffia I tied around the stem.
