Halloween Painted Pumpkins& Vintage Picture

 Carving pumpkins can be a fun tradition, but they never last very long.  So I thought something fun to do would be to paint pumpkins and making them have a stone look to them.
 Start with a plastic pumpkin, this one is actually really cute so its the only one I had that wasn't painted. But the painted ones were just plain orange ones.
 First step, spray paint a grey primer on the pumpkin and let it dry.
Paint with the Orange Martha Stewart Terra Cotta paint, and blot it on the pumpkin with a sponge brush.
Once dry, paint on in various places Martha Stewart Living textured Metallic.  Finish off with Martha Stewart Living Mettalic paint in white.
The finished product!
 I placed them next to a old fence post by the fireplace, and made it look like a pumpkin patch!  I love how they turned out!!!
 For the vintage painted picture start with an old picture frame.
 Spray paint the picture the base black.
 Take out some pages out of an old dictionary and glue them to the board.
 When it is done, it should look something like this.
 Decide what image you want painted on, I choose a pumpkin, and paint the image on top of the pages.
 Next, I took some basketball ornaments and painted them orange, and then added a face to them.
 Once dry, I tied them up to the top of the picture with some fun Halloween ribbon.
 Then added some on the sides.
