DIY Preppy Painted Pumpkins

It’s beginning to look a lot like FALL Y’ALL in my apartment! After going on an online shopping spree to Michael’s, I left with an online cart full of many finds and lots of inspiration for many fun crafts. As I was getting all excited to get into the Fall spirit, I just knew that I wanted to create some things myself for my own apartment. Crafting has most definitely been a godsend to me during the Covid-19 pandemic, and I have finally been able to establish it to be another passion of mine. Today, I will be showcasing my DIY Preppy Painted Pumpkins!

To do my DIY, I spent a few days and episodes of Sweet Magnolia‘s on Netflix to paint them, as I needed to dry the paint between days. It was most definitely a great relaxing activity, especially amidst all of the uncertainty that our current times have brought on to us all.

My pumpkins are each plastic and purchased from Michael’s (I got the smallest size I could find, as I am a college student on a budget). That way, I can use them with my Fall decor year after year! The BEST part about painting plastic pumpkins?! They come in a variety of colors, sizes, and can easily be painted to your liking!

Overall, I truly LOVE my preppy painted pumpkins – they are uniquely my own and something that I can call mine. Moreover, they were also designed at a fraction of the price of getting a pumpkin done from an Etsy artist, and it was super fun to do!
