DIY: Gold Painted Pumpkins

I've always enjoyed carving pumpkins as part of activity to celebrate fall and get ready for Halloween. This year I wanted to try something a little bit different, and this was so much easier and less messy! My sister and I took a trip to an awesome pumpkin patch and picked out a ton of cool pumpkins and gourds. We bought gold acrylic paint and a gold paint pen like this one and checked out some different designs online to try. It was super easy to use the paint pens, which I used on the spiderwebs and polka dot one.  I used a brush and the paint on the chevron one, which wasn't as easy and needed a couple of coats. It was fun to try and I like the festive pumpkins in my apartment to enjoy for the next couple of weeks :)

Also, this square green pumpkin was just begging to be painted like Frankenstein :)
