I’m still getting this place Fall-ified.
(What? It’s totally a word.)
This project was one of those happy accidents. I had a faux pumpkin – the plastic foam kind that are for sale at craft stores this time of year.
I sat it on my craft table and when I sat down and started to work on another project, I looked up and saw my can of Minwax Polyshades sitting there. Bingo!
This project is as simple as one coat of Espresso Gloss Polyshades on a faux pumpkin. Polyshades is a fantastic product, by the way, and I’m not being paid to say that.
I’ve used it on several pieces of furniture now and just love it. It’s polyurethane that has a stain mixed right in.
It’s a one stop shop for giving wood a new look. Love it. Comes in Satin finish too
So poly that pumpkin. Go for it!
Once it’s dry, you can embellish it if you want. I had a package of silver toned furniture nails that I got from Lowe’s. They are $1.30 for a pack of 25.
You can lay them out on the table to get an idea of what design you want to use.
Press them into place on your shiny new pumpkin and get ready to wow the neighbors!
I absolutely love the way this turned out.
Glam and pretty and totally customizable.
I think they’d make great hostess gifts or teacher gifts!
