Making and Painting Cement Pumpkins Using Bungalow 47™ Furniture Paint
Fall is the prettiest time of year, especially if you are in a color-changing state like we are in Michigan! The days grow shorter, nights get an edge of a chill, and our crafting bug calls out to us to start projects! This week, we ventured out to make cement pumpkins.
Gathering our supplies, this is what we pulled together:
cement mix in a bag (one bag made two pumpkins)
a large bucket to mix cement
Bungalow 47™ Furniture Paint in a variety of colors.
Not shown but needed: a large brick, sanding block, and a utility knife.
This is gettin’ done at our house this year! For sure! How fun!!!!
How fun! I just came across this on Pinterest and it looked really familiar. Thanks for linking to our original video. Your pumpkins came out great. ~Vicki, Mother Daughter Projects
Can you reuse the pumpkin mold?
No. You pretty much have to cut it away to reveal the cement pumpkin. But you can buy them at the dollar store, so it’s an easy investment!
Love this idea! How heavy would you say the cement pumpkins are when they’re finished?
