Polka Dot Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Hello, dear friends!
Hope the week is going well for you.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I am enjoying sprucing up my home for the upcoming holiday.
So, I thought I will share with you my Thanksgiving centerpiece that I am planning to use on my buffet table.

Supplies needed:
Pumpkins of various sizes
Acrylic Metallic Gold paint
Sponge Brush
Round Stickers 

For the polka dot pumpkin, I borrowed some round stickers from my kids and placed them randomly on the surface of the pumpkin. Then, I applied two coats of gold metallic paint all over the pumpkin.. I let the paint dry overnight and peeled off the stickers from the pumpkin, and

Love the way the polka dotted pumpkin turned out!

I removed the top of the bigger of the three pumpkins, painted it with the same metallic gold paint. Then, I used the painted pumpkin as a vase filled with silk florals. 
I like how the gold contrasts so beautifully with the autumn flowers!

The warm glow of candlelight creates a magical ambience 
and a perfect setting for an elegant dinner.

I am looking forward to using these painted pumpkins as a centerpiece on my buffet table.

Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs, Poppy
