When fall comes along, it's hard to give up on the color of summer. Fall is still a colorful time though, so why not bring some color into the house with some colorful pumpkin decor. These pumpkins are very easy to make and can be made during a quick movie or afternoon craft time. I must admit, I made these a couple of years ago but now I'm finally getting around to sharing it.

It is bright and cheerful over our mantel and keeps the colors of summer in the house. Are you a colorful pumpkin or more of a traditional pumpkin decorator? My kids like traditional, but they like these colorful pumpkins as well. They go great with all the pumpkins I sprayed all different colors.

Step 1:

There are two ways you can paint the pumpkins, with spray paint or with acrylic craft paints. I tried both methods. The nice thing about spraying is it is quick and pretty simple. What I like about acrylic is there are more color variation options. Pick your colors before you paint them. I decided I wanted semi-muted rainbow colors.

Step 2:

Now we're going to stain the leaves; this is pretty straight forward. Simply stain it your desired color. I used dark walnut. After it has dried for its allotted time, spray with sealant.

Step 3:

Next, drill two holes into the leaves if there aren't already holes there. 

Step 4:

Last decide the order you want your fall shapes to be in and string onto the yarn. Hang up in your house somewhere and enjoy!
