DIY Grandmillennial Pumpkins

For today’s post I wanted to talk about a quick and fun DIY.

I love decorating for fall, but didn’t want the dark oranges, burgundy, and black.

I wanted to decorate and it still fit into my style. Then I ran across this video and it sparked some ideas.

I decided to decorate three style of pumpkins: white, blue, and a patterned pumpkin using the technique above.


I purchased these pumpkins from Amazon. They were all the same size and easy to work with.

Next I got this gold paint, because I wanted all the stems to be gold.

I got Mod Podge for the decoupage pumpkins as well as these cute ginger jar napkins to decorate the pumpkins with.

Finally, I went to Walmart and got this Rustoleum spray paint in French Blue for the light blue pumpkins.

The Process

Blue and White Pumpkins

For the decoupage pumpkins I pretty much just followed Monica’s tutorial. It was super easy and I want to give her all the credit here and share her wonderful DIY.

Light Blue Pumpkins

For the blue pumpkins, I sprayed them with the french blue spray paint and painted the stems gold and they look like completely different pumpkins!

White Pumpkins

For the last style, I wanted to leave some of them the original white, but paint the stem gold.

I think these three pumpkins go together well while still offering a little contrast to each other.

I can’t wait to pick up some more pumpkins and put them all around the house!

An easy and cheap way to make fall decor fit within your style!

The great thing about this is it is so customizable to your own personal style.

Are you planning to decorate some pumpkins this year?
