Mini Rose Gold Pumpkin Planters

Spray paint is the best.  It's an instant makeover in a can.  The last couple of years, my halloween and holiday decor has been a little more on the colorless side, with lots of black and white. Orange pumpkins just won't do. But, a quick coat of Design Master's Rose Gold paint, and I've got fancy mini pumpkins.

All good parties have a favor, and these cute little Jack O' Lantern succulent planters are sure to be a hit.  I added simple black paper flags with guest's names so that these favors could double as place cards as well.

Here's what you'll need:

Mini Treat Sized Plastic Pumpkin (available at party supply stores)
little succulents
potting soil
Design Master Rose Gold Spray Paint

This is as easy as it gets. Simply spray paint the entire plastic pumpkin. Design Master Premium Metals paint goes on evenly and these bright orange pumpkins only needed two coats.

When the paint is completely dry, you can plant the succulents in the pumpkin planters. Because of their wide bottoms, be sure to add extra potting soil to the bottom half of the planter and then place the plant.  Pack the soil in around the plant and water them.

Now you can set your table and add little flags with your guest's names on each one or just a generic "BOO" or "EEK".  I used some black card stock and a white chalk pen to label my flags.

I buy my Design Master paints and my local Michaels. Design Master paints can paint the most delicate of surfaces, such as silk and fresh flowers, fabric, ribbon, tulle, lace, paper, foam board and Stryrofoam TO the sturdy hard surfaces such as wood, metal, masonry, terra cotta, ceramics and plaster. Design Master is a great resource for products and ideas.  Be sure to check out all the craft and project ideas on their blog.
