Have you seen the new Pottery Barn terra cotta pumpkins? They are the cutest Jack o'lanterns but start at almost $50! So I decided to make a knockoff version...
To get the terracotta pumpkin look I am using a ceramic pumpkin, joint compound, paint, & crushed chalk dust.
Let the joint compound dry and harden (probably overnight depending on your climate).
Paint your pumpkins in a terra cotta shade of paint...either acrylic craft or chalk paint will work. Let the paint dry completely!
Crush up a few sticks of chalk until they are dust.
Use your fingers to rub the chalk dust all over the pumpkins. Don't worry, if you get too much on just use a dry paintbrush to sweep some off!
Seriously, how cute are these little pumpkins??
