You really can’t sit still for too long in our house at the moment, unless you want to end up being Farrow & Balled that is!
This weekend has seen the annual Sassy HQ pumpkin carving! Our contribution for 2016 is a werewolf, a pair of Harry Potter glasses complete with scar and a last minute addition of, what we like to call, ‘pumpkin in front of a moon, with bats flying about’ – Mr Sassy was challenged to something a little more intricate.
I remember being so impressed, last year, when seeing white and chalk painted miniature pumpkins in a beautiful London boutique. So, this year I set myself a challenge to see if I could recreate the stunning white and grey shades myself.
I must say if really was very easy and, I think, looks rather chic! Here’s how I achieved mine…
You will need:
A selection of grey paint
Disposable containers for paint
A 0.5cm paint brush
Pour out your desired paint shades into the disposable containers. I used Farrow & Ball paint samples – Down Pipe, Plumett, Manor House Gray & Whitest White.
You, then just need to get the paint onto the pumpkins, simple.
Leave the pumpkins to dry on newspaper, they don’t really look anything at this point but be patient.
When dry add a second coat and then leave to dry for a couple of hours.
That’s it – really simple! Chic pumpkins in grey tones to add a little elegance to your home now the clocks have gone back and the autumnal nights are drawing in.
Have you been decorating your pumpkins, let me know how you got on!
