We love using autumn squash and gourds to create inexpensive holiday centerpieces. This year we tried spray-painting them a lovely gold finish to take them to the next level. The rich metallic hue created an ideal centerpiece for the holidays. It’s almost too simple!
Follow along to create your own unique place setting.
Step 1You will need craft paper to protect your work surface and a metallic spray paint. Purchase gourds of varying sizes and shapes for the most interest and appeal. Wash and dry them well.
Step 2 Evenly spray the gourds with a coat of spray paint. Allow the gourds dry for 1-2 hours then spray the other side or any spots that you might have missed. Allow to completely dry.
