Tuesday after the cold front rolled through, the sky took on an eery hue at sunset – it was a glowing orange, the kind of thing you hope to see on Halloween! I snapped the first pic of the pumpkins just before all the light was gone, I truly wish you could have seen it – it was quite something.
I love the mini boo pumpkins, they were always my favorite part of fall as a little girl and they probably still are. One thing I haven’t been able to find is the white mini boos! There is something extra special about the white boos! In lieu of real white mini boos I picked up some cheap glittery pumpkins and loosely followed this tutorial. I liked the idea of using chalk paint, because like chocolate “fixes all your problems” chalk paint makes everything that’s not quite right, perfection!
Painted White Mini Boos
I started by pulling the picks and stems out. I threw the picks out and put the stems back after the painting was done. These pumpkins were incredibly uniform and I didn’t care for that look so, I randomly smooshed them up a bit. With Annie Sloan’s Old White and a little water added I gave them two coats. With equal parts French Linen, Old White and water mixed, I painted random areas of the pumpkin and once it was half dry I painted with the Old white and water again.
Are you as in love with white mini boos as I am?
