To whoever originally came up with this idea, you're a genius!
When I saw this project on Pinterest I had to give it a try. And, I knew that Dixie Belle Paint Company's new clay based paint, Terra, would be the perfect product to use.
Looking at it, it looks like old tin. But, surprisingly, this project uses a Dollar Tree cardboard pumpkin & a peel & stick plastic tile, also from the Dollar Tree.
In the end, the pumpkin is white, but I wanted some color to show through. I used 3 colors of Terra to paint the pumpkin... Blue Agave, Cerulean Blue, & Galaxy.
