Hey there, Sweet Friends, Pumpkin fever struck at the beginning of October and I am full of Pumpkin Ideas! Today is a tutorial on how to make “Faux Pumpkins Turned Blue” into extraordinary amazingness.
Thank you to Rustoleum for sponsoring my post today and last week.

Faux Pumpkin Makeover
As you may remember, the project was:
Faux Pumpkins + my favorite Rustoleum’s Painter’s Touch 2x Ultra Cover Satin Spray = Cute and Amazing Pumpkin’s!
Now it’s time to add a little extraordinary to these Cute and Amazing Pumpkins.
Iron Orchid Designs
Hello, Iron Orchid Designs!!!
Y’all know how much I am addicted to Iron Orchid Designs. I absolutely love using the Decor Transfers on my Furniture Makeovers and the Moulds on my Home Decor Projects and now I’m going to show you how you can use their stamps.
Note aside: Sharing is Caring! If you’re on my You Tube channel, please do share my videos with your friends.
For this project you will need:
- Faux Pumpkins – if you don’t have any on hand, check out the Dollar Store.
- Rustoleum’s Painter’s Touch 2x Ultra Cover Satin Spray, Satin Aqua.
- Iron Orchid Design Decor Stamp in Rose Toile
- Iron Orchid Design Ink in White
- Iron Orchid Design Stamp Pad
- Debi’s Design Diary DIY Paint in Layered Chocolate
- Paint Brush
Here’s the quick and easy diy with photos included!
- Add ink to pad. I prefer to purchase a stamp pad for each color I’m using. A few drops of ink is all you need.
- Apply pad to stamp. Test stamp on paper first to ensure you have not applied to much ink to the stamp.
- Stamp pumpkins. Once you have placed the inked stamp on surface, hold with one hand and tickle stamp with the other hand. Do not shift.
- Paint stems with Brown Paint using Paint Brush.
All of the products can be purchased online at CreateWithCynthiaShop.com or at my “New” Antique Mall location in Redwood City, Antiques Then & Now, 1281 Veterans Boulevard, Redwood City, California. If you missed the announcement last week you can read about it here.
I hope you enjoyed the DIY. Now go out there and create something.
