I know, I know, it's a gourd! But I like this shape better :) Halloween is approaching fast and there was no pumpkin in the house. The perfect time to try out my first neon project. I keep pinning wonderful neon images, my friends gave me a set of neon watermark colors and my autumn decor was in need of a funky addition. Enter the neon pumpkin, the star of the home!
This is easy and quick to do. I've snapped some pics for a little tutorial. First, mark your separation line with duct tape and paint the whole thing white (I used acrylic paint). Second, use the duct tape to set a new line and paint the neon graphic line. Add some dots for a whimsical effect. Remove the tape and you're done! Actually, when I removed the tape over the white paint there was a little accident and some of the paint got stuck to the tape and went away. Oh well, I could have repaired that but I love the perfectly imperfect neon pumpkin :)
