The Pottery Barn terracotta pumpkins are a hot commodity this fall, but they can be expensive. If you're looking for a more affordable way to get the look, you can make your own terracotta pumpkin dupe at home.
– A ceramic pumpkin – Joint compound – Terracotta paint – Chalk dust
Spread a coat of joint compound over the pumpkin.
Let the joint compound dry and harden.
Paint your pumpkin in a terracotta shade of paint.
Crush up a few sticks of chalk until they are dust. Use your fingers to rub the chalk dust all over the pumpkin.
Don't worry if you get too much chalk on the pumpkin, you can always brush some off with a dry paintbrush.
With these simple steps, you can make your own Pottery Barn terracotta pumpkin dupe for a fraction of the price. So what are you waiting for? Get crafting!
