Mini Custom Foiled Pumpkins

Mini Custom Foiled Pumpkins: It's Fall Y'all!

I love decorating with these small pumpkins that I found at the Dollar Tree and decided they would be perfect to paint and foil.

These were base coated in Bondago Black and allowed to dry overnight or for at least a few hours.

Then I grabbed some of our fabulous Foil Adhesive and painted the adhesive onto the pumpkins in a checkered pattern. These are free-hand and not perfect but it still looks amazing. Just follow the pattern I created in the video and then allow the adhesive to dry for at least an hour!

I used Orange Foil, but you can use any color you want for your decor. Cut the foil into small pieces so that you can easily transfer it to the small squares that you painted with the foil adhesive. I used a stiff toothbrush to scrub the foil and transfer it to the pumpkin surface.

The foils are amazing a give such a beautiful sheen! Make sure to finish the pumpkins with a layer of topcoat. It's best to use a gloss or semi-gloss for this project to let your foils shine.

You can use these small pumpkins to decorate your home this fall: a wreath for your front door, your mantel, or even a centerpiece for your table! The possibilities are endless! I cannot wait to see what you create 😁
