I absolutely love fall decor as much as I love vintage farmhouse. However, I’m totally not a fan of paying a lot of money for decor items that will only sit out for a couple of weeks! I saw these foam pumpkins at my local Dollar Tree and decided to try out my Dixie Belle Crackle on them in hopes to get a vintage look! … and it worked! These crackle painted pumpkins look great with my DIY Fabric Pumpkins | Farmhouse Style.

- Paint Dixie Belle Crackle all over the pumpkin with foam brush and allow to completely dry
- Once the crackle is completely dry, lightly paint on Dixie Belle Drop Cloth chalk paint with the foam brush. While the paint dries, it reactivates the Crackle and begins to crackle! The orange of the pumpkin will start to show through the Drop Cloth paint color.
- Allow to fully dry and then have fun decorating your home!
- TIP: If you would like a different color other than orange to show through the crackle, paint your pumpkin whatever color you would like. Let the paint dry and then apply the Crackle and then your top layer paint.
I love how they turned out! They really fit the vintage farmhouse look that I love!
Because they are so economical, you can make a bunch and place them all over the house!
I love projects that make a big statement but are 1. affordable and 2. take literally no time at all! 3. don’t make a big mess (cleaning up after big projects is always the worst part!)
I’d love to know, would you guys make these? They are certainly easy enough to whip up during nap time or right before you hit the sack yourself!
