Well after much inspiration from my latest Pottery Barn catalog, I am FINALLY in the Fall mood!
I started some of my Fall/Halloween projects this past week. These faux mercury glass pumpkins were first on my list!
I started out with some Funkins (foam pumpkins) from the
Then I pulled out my Metallic Silver spray paint and gave them a good coat. I also painted a few with Copper spray paint. I wanted a bit of variety!

So I got out some yard sale circle stickers and started putting them all over my freshly painted silver pumpkin
(TIP: I waited until the paint was very dry first!)
Then I took my Heirloom White spray paint and gave it a couple coats. Once the spray paint semi dried I removed the stickers. I love how the silver shows through. I also used this painting technique here with a twist...to redo another pumpkin.
Here are the rest of my PB Knock off Mercury Glass pumpkins!
Stay tuned for a few more Fall Pottery Barn Knock offs
