Giving old halloween decor new life with spray paint

Three cheers for spray paint! Seriously. Ever since I spray painted a turquoise pair of high top converse orange with spray paint in grade four I’ve been in love. I mean, it’s almost magical. It was THIS…and now it’s THAT.

It was ugly orange and way too ‘halloween’ for my more ‘Harvest’ style decor, and now it’s pretty and copper. Magical I tell you.

Two of the fun items used to decorate the house for fall where both re-purposed using spray paint and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results (especially considering how easy the effort).

Did you miss the Fall Home Tour? See all the beauty HERE.

I bought these pumpkins a million years ago (okay, maybe 5 or 6) at the Superstore and the orange was really getting to me. Enter my super stash of every colour of spray paint (it’s bordering on hording, but whatever….) and fabulous copper to rescue.


The pumpkins got a quick clean to make sure there was no dust and then outside they went for their new colour.


Two quick coats later, I left them to dry.


And just like that they were an instant upgrade and ‘worked’ such much better with all the other fall decor.


Finally, a dozen or so of the white carnations I used my awesome faux floral DIY got a quick hit of black, copper, and a combo of both. They add such a nice detail to both the buffet and mantle with all the harvest goodies.






I even added some to the witch hat hanging in the dining room. Want to see the full fall home tour? Be sure to click HERE.
