DIY Fall Tablescape

by Lynn Lilly, Nov 01 2020

Can you guys tell that I love Fall? Fall gives me all the feels. I'm not sure what it is but I just get the warm and fuzzies this time of year. From making new family memories to celebrating in our home with beautiful tablescapes, I am in love with Fall! 

I like to do halfway homemade tablescapes, with a few do it yourself elements layered in with inexpensive home decor form. I get most of my decor for designing tables from Michaels Stores and Home Goods! For this table, I am creating 5 designs on small white pumpkins and sharing how to incorporate them into your tablescape.

I had a mix of pumpkins that were already cream colored and the ones where not I painted white with chalk paint. For this design, I was trying to think outside the traditional orange, yellow and brown Fall colors and bring out a little glam with black, gold, cream, and pinks. 

Gold Tooth Brush Technique: 

Dip the bristles of a toothbrush in metallic gold paint and brush horizontally on the side of the pumpkin.

Paint Pour Technique:

Pick two of your favorite colors and heavily pour at the base of the pumpkin stem and let it drip down the pumpkin.

Gold Leafing Technique:

Apply Mod Podge to the pumpkin in the areas you want to leaf. Apply pieces or sheets of gold leaf over the Mod Podge areas and use a clean brush to dab off the excess.

Marbling Technique: 

Fill a disposable tub with water. Select 2-3 colors of nail polish and quickly pour on the surface of the water. Use a craft stick to swirl the colors on the surface. Dip the pumpkin straight down and up. Let it drip dry.

Floral Technique:

Select an assortment of fall florals (you can think outside the orange and brown box) and pull them off the stems. Glue them around the base of the stem.

Incorporate these pumpkins into your table design for a festival fall feel! Display in a bowl, on candle pillars, and as place cards.
