I wanted Halloween planters. My budget was small, but I had an idea to create this look with paints. I found these very inexpensive pumpkin buckets at Walmart for $1. I also had a large pumpkin bucket that was purchased at a thrift store, also for $1.

Total Time: 2 hours

Yield: 4 or more

Supplies:

  • pumpkin buckets
  • spray paint
  • craft paints
  • sea sponge
  • sealer
  • flowers, optional

Steps:

  1. Take your pumpkins and place on a tarp/or cardboard outside.
  2. Spray paint; let dry.
  3. Use craft paints in the shades of cream, grey, light brown, or dark tan color, with your sea sponge (sea sponge works the best). Lightly press your sea sponge in the first color (cream) and lightly tap all over your pumpkin.
  4. Repeat the process with the next color (grey).
  5. Lastly use the light brown/dark tan color tapping lightly.
  6. Stand back and take a look. It appears to look like stone. You can add more color tapping to your liking, (stone has many looks).
  7. Dry. Add a spray sealer.
  8. You can put potted fall flowers in the pumpkins to finish the project.
