How to make Terracotta Pumpkins:

Step 1. I started by mixing up my paint. If you purchase the terracotta paint from walmart its easy to get the shade you want. I used my sons paint so it took me awhile to mix the paint. It worked out to a good squeeze of orange, a drop of red, a ton of white and few drops of yellow.

Step 2. I painted the pumpkins. I gave them a good first coat but because of the shiny finish on these pumpkins, I had to do a second coat to get good coverage.

Step 3. While the paint was still wet I sprinkled the pumpkins with baking soda. This gives the pumpkin some texture and makes it look more pottery like.

Step 4. Let the pumpkins dry completely. After they have dried if they look like they need another coat, do so. Once the pumpkins dried I rubbed them with flour and then used a paint brush to dust off any excess flour.

Step 5. The final step is to brush the pumpkins with mod podge. This just seals them so they aren’t super flour-ey.
