Super Easy Gold Dipped Pumpkins

Hello everyone! Here’s a wonderfully quick craft for your fall decor… fun gold dipped pumpkins! These are fantastic if you’re really into fall, but have a room with a more neutral color scheme. Even better- they are small and will fit in a dorm room super easily.

Shimmery fall vibes ❤

You will need:

  • A nice white pumpkin (or an orange one which you can paint white)
  • Gold acrylic paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Painter’s Tape
  • Newspaper

Start by putting newspaper on your working surface so you don’t make a mess- unless you would also like to paint your desk gold 🙂

Next put a strip of painter’s tape around your pumpkin a tad higher than the middle. Press it down to make sure you have a clean line and that no paint gets under the tape.

Turn your pumpkin upside down and starting front the center paint upward until you hit the tape. Do this all the way around the pumpkin. You will likely need several layers.

Peel off the tape and let the pumpkin dry. That’s it! You’re done!

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can try a different design. For example, Michelle did a dotted pattern on her pumpkin.

She started by counting out the ridges of the pumpkin and doing the pattern on every other ridge. The dots go from small to large and back to small as you go around the pumpkin.

She also painted the stem gold- another awesome touch which can easily be done by wrapping painters tape around the stem before painting!

Two Beautiful Pumpkins!

Hopefully these pumpkins give you some ideas for your Halloween projects 🙂


This week’s Inktober theme is skeletons!

They’re all skeletons!


Like so many other things I’ve done this month, this piece is inspired by Over the Garden Wall, a fantastic October series that I highly recommend.

Have a great week!
