I'm always on the lookout for crafts that are easy enough to do with my daughter. Today I went to BigLots and bought a few decorative pumpkins for $1 each. They were pretty cute on their own, but they did look a little cheap, and when I brought them home I realized that I didn't love the colors. That is when I remembered that I had this paint. As you can see by the price tag still on it, it was not expensive. And I think I got it when paints were 40% off (craft stores have sales like that all the time.)
And painting them was easy enough for Violet to do.
Here are the two I did; I applied a pretty thin layer because I liked the different colors to show through. Also, they were much more metallic than they look in these pictures. They didn't photograph too well.
