If you have been following my blog you know I made a Spooky Wispy Wreath by spray painting silver pumpkins white for a more eerie look.

Well now the rest of my decor just didn’t match, so what better to do? Get out the old spray paint and get to work! I found these cool Green Sparkly Halloween Alphabet Chipbox Letters and decided to use them to add creepy lettering!

Spray Painted Pumpkins {Real & Faux}




Tape up the pumpkin stems.


You will see in the pic, 3 of my pumpkins are real. You need to use a primer to cover the orange and make the white apply and cover the pumpkin easier.

Also, it saves paint. I used 2 cans of white and 3/4 of a can of primer to do them all. Let them dry. Then I lightly misted them with a brown bronzey color I had on hand so they wouldn’t be too, too white.


Next I hot glued the very cool cardboard letters on. Super easy and soo much better and faster than a stencil. Love it!
