Who says pumpkins are only for Fall?
I have been seeing the cutest pumpkin vases floating around Pinterest. I thought that would make a great Valentine’s Day project! I have also been pinning chalk painted mason jars and thought that a mason jar pumpkin would be a unique project as well. Using DecoArt Chalky paint and some fake flowers I purchased at a local craft store, this project painted so quickly!

Tall Pumpkin #80824
Dusty Rose #13025
To get a pretty coral color, mix equal parts of Promise #15401 and smitten #15107. Apply 2-3 coats letting dry between coats.
Line the upper edges of the logo with everlasting. Once dry, lightly highlight the inside of the logo with everlasting. Shade the lower edges of the logo with yesteryear. I thought that the logo needed to pop a bit more so I added a subtle shadow with thinned Dusty Rose.
I wanted to keep the matte finish so I sprayed the pumpkin Matte Spray Varnish. Using hot glue, i attached the flowers to the top of the pumpkin. I am SO pleased with this project and love displaying it as our Valentine’s Day table centerpiece.
