Cinderella's Pumpkin

My Cinderella Pumpkin
I wanted to try to paint my pumpkin with silver and gold - so I did. 

First I bought a white pumpkin (or Moon Pumpkin) then I wrapped an old piece of lace (I had in the house-cuz I'm super cheap) around the pumpkin and pinned it in place with straight pins. 

Then I just started spraying. First I did a layer of gold then I added a little silver over the top..

I let it dry outside for a little while. Then I peeled off the lace and brought the pretty pumpkin inside for a centerpiece.  

 It reminded me of Cinderella :D

GG: It was so fun - now I want to go back and carve around the lace so the light will shine through at night....well that might take some real talent ;D maybe I won't be doing that.
