1. Start by applying spackle all over the pumpkin.

These festive decorations are perfect for adding a touch of autumnal flavor to any space. And best of all, they’re surprisingly easy to make. Just grab some spackle and get started.

Don’t be afraid to add a rougher texture with your spackle during this process. Allow it to dry completely. I like using Drydex spackle because it starts out as a bright pink but turns white when it has dried completely. Once your pumpkin is dry, you can simply set it out on your doorstep or mantel and enjoy the season.

2. Sand down the spackle on the Jack-o-lantern surface.

With a little bit of sanding, you can transform this pumpkin into a work of art. The Gator micro sanding tool is the perfect tool for the job. It’s designed to sand down the rougher edges, and it gives the pumpkin a terracotta-like texture that looks realistic.

3. Apply your acrylic paint to create a faux terracotta look pumpkin.

Acrylic paint is a versatile medium that can be used to create a variety of looks. For this project, we’re going to use it to create a faux terracotta finish on a pottery barn pumpkin.

Begin by painting the entire pumpkin with the DecoArt Terracotta paint.

Allow the paint to dry completely before displaying your finished pumpkin. You can easily transform a store-bought pumpkin into a work of art with just a few simple steps.

4. Dust and brush baby powder onto your pumpkin.

One easy way to add some extra dimension to your pumpkin is to dust it with baby powder. First, you’ll want to find a pottery barn pumpkin that’s the perfect size for your home.

Then, simply brush on a thin layer of baby powder.

The powder will help to create a matte finish that will catch the light in unique ways. Plus, it’s a fun and easy way to add some extra Halloween flair to your decor. So if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to take your pumpkin decor up a notch, try dusting it with baby powder.
