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.

Susan Lott is a great party planner! She has tons of great ideas that she needs to share with the online world. I have been begging her to start a Facebook page or Etsy account. The graduation gift that she made me was hand drawn with my name and different definitions for each letter. She framed it and I cherish it.....I also would have paid about $50 for it in a store. Thanks for sharing her idea but this idea is nothing compared to some of her other quick and money saving tips! You should hire her for your creative team!
Love you Susu!
