Gilded Fall Holiday Display

cournecopia
(OK, yes. So this Fall decor post is a little late. I'm still stuffed with pumpkin pie and can barely move, alright? These simple decor techniques can be used for Christmas as well, so sit back, grab a slice of pie, and let your imaginations run wild.)

I'm obsessively devoted to my home's neutral palette, which poses a problem when Thanksgiving rolls around. Fall decorating is all about highlighter-bright color, and I searched in vain for some silvery gold pumpkins for my mantle display. Finally, three days before Thanksgiving, I gave up looking and bought a pile of plastic pumpkins and faux fall foliage. Then (forgive me, color-lovers) I attacked those reds oranges and yellows with a hearty blast of Krylon silver and gold spray paint. Holiday blasphemy? Perhaps. But it certainly made for an interesting conversation piece.

Simple DIY Instructions:

1. Buy tacky bright artificial fall foliage, pumpkins, apples, etc. Throw in a few pine cones for texture.

2. Spray paint with Krylon gold and silver metallic spray paint. I used silver as the base, and puffed just the tiniest wisps of gold paint from a distance--just to dust the tops of the items with pale gold dust.

3. Dot a few of the pumpkins with glue and sprinkle on a bit of silver glitter.

4. Arrange. If you have a thick satin ribbon, wrap it around the edge of your awesome glittery pile of harvest bounty.

Good luck decorating, Sisteroos!

LOVE IT! My accent color is gold and luckily I found a bunch of plastic gold pumpkins at Michaels. I can't help but be envious of your white/silver theme. It's so unique and clean.
