Do you know those little pumpkin-shaped plastic baskets intended for collecting sweets or sold already filled with candies and chocolates of all kinds? They look totally ugly, don’t they? Well, they can be transformed into beautiful themed decorations for next to nothing and in just a few minutes! You’ll need a spray of gold paint and you’re good to go!
We have to explain that it is always necessary to use a respiratory protection mask when handling spray paint and, provided the conditions allow it, it is better to work outside. Otherwise, open windows and doors wide to allow air circulation and follow all precautionary measures indicated on the bottle.
The steps for making this DIY Halloween 2022 table decoration are quite apparent. Protect the work surface and yourself, evenly cover the plastic pumpkins with gold paint and let them dry. Enjoy them as vases or planters or arrange bouquets of warm fall leaves in them. Certainly, this approach works with other objects that look cheap.

DIY gothic style pumpkin centerpiece
Here is a DIY Halloween 2022 table decoration that will immediately catch the eyes of your guests. As you can see, it is a white pumpkin adorned with a plume of black fabric flowers creating an unmistakable gothic style. The rest of the supplies include wire cutters, a hot glue gun, a sponge brush, a roll of masking tape and of course – black, acrylic and spray paint.
Start by covering the skin of the pumpkin around the stem with a few scraps of masking tape and painting the stalk black using acrylic paint and a sponge or regular paintbrush. Leave to dry and, in the meantime, spray the flowers with the black spray making sure to cover them perfectly. Leave them aside to dry very well.
After they are completely dry, cut the stems of the flowers with the pliers and apply hot glue to their base. Attach them to the pumpkin in a row diagonally or in another pattern of your choice. As you can see yourself, decorating a pumpkin with flowers is not at all complex. At the same time, the resulting decoration is totally fabulous!
