Metallic Color Block Pumpkins

Have you seen all the fun color block decor trends popping up this year? Why not use that concept with pumpkins! I used the ever-popular blush color along with metallic copper acrylic paint. Sprinkled some fine copper glitter on top for a shiny pop!

Color block pumpkins are easy to make, you just tape of one half of the pumpkin and paint it. When it dries you tape off and paint the other section.

There are so many color combos you could use to match your decor. These metallic copper pumpkins would make a beautiful Thanksgiving Day tablescape pop and sparkle!

Add a fun mascarade mask to the copper pumpkin and they become a Halloween sensation! Masks on pumpkins are so fun.

What kind of paint do you use on foam pumpkins?

I used acrylic matte paint and shiny acrylic metallic paint. When painting over foam you need to apply several coats for full coverage.

Here’s what you need to make these beauties!

At first, I wasn’t sure if I should cover them with glitter or not. I liked them with the copper tops, but the glitter got the best of me so I went ahead and added it!

Apply the adhesive with a paintbrush and pour the fine glitter on the first pumpkin. Knock off excess glitter and let it dry.

Spray lightly with spray glue over the fine glitter and sprinkle some of the larger copper glitter on top. And that’s it! They came out so shiny and pretty.
