  • Pull stems off of pumpkins, they’ll pop right out!
  • Lay out a drop cloth and set your pumpkins at least 6″ away from each other.
  • Line stems up, 2″ apart.
  • Lightly spray pumpkins until well coated, they’ll need 2 coats.
  • Lightly spray stems, they’ll only need 1 coat.
  • If you have stems that aren’t removable like our paper mache pumpkins, don’t despair! Spray paint the whole pumpkin first. When dry (about 30 minutes depending on your weather), wrap it inside of a plastic grocery bag and rip a small hole into the bag then pull stem through. Tape the bag into place so the bag doesn’t shift. Lightly spray gold, let dry for a few minutes then remove the bag.
  • Gently push dried stems back into now-pink pumpkins.
