Pumpkins and Polka Dots

Pumpkin appreciation.
Pumpkin appreciation season.

Sometimes you just need a good DIY project to relax you, and for me, pumpkin season was the perfect inspiration. Without having a plan, I stopped into Trader Joes and picked up 5 pumpkins, each varying in size and color. Now, what to do? I consulted Pinterest and decided polka dots were whimsical and easy motifs, and gold would go nicely with the neutral colors in my living room. I bought a tube of gold acrylic paint and a paintbrush at Utrecht, then headed to the drugstore to pick up a circular makeup sponge for the polka dots.

With set up and clean up, the project took me about 20 minutes. It was easy and fun, and now our apartment is even more cheerful than it was before.
