DIY Pink Marbled Pumpkins

I love repurposing things!  I recently made two adorable Sand Art pumpkins that matched my Tassel Pumpkin. I then had 9 extra Sand Art Pumpkins leftover.  Instead of buying more sand to make more pumpkins, I used those extra pumpkins and created these adorable DIY Pink Marbled Pumpkins!  I’m so excited to share how to whip these up in no time at all.

The first step is filling each sand art pumpkin with paint.  I used about 3 or 4 different shades of pink, orange and raspberry per pumpkin.

Some of my acrylic paints did not have easy to pour spouts, so I used mini funnels with made it MUCH easier and saved me from a huge mess!

I had multiple pumpkins going at once, just mixing and adding different colors to each one.  It was really quite fun experimenting with them.

Once I had a decent amount of paint in each pumpkin, I put the lid back on the pumpkin and shook!  It becomes apparent after shaking, if you need to add more paint to cover the entire surface of the pumpkin or not.

After all the pumpkins had enough paint to cover their insides, I removed all the lids and let them dry for a few hours.

After the pumpkins were dry, I curled gold pipe cleaners around the top of the pumpkins.

Using different patterned green and black scrapbook papers, I cut out a few simple leaves and hot glued them to the pipe cleaners + pumpkins.  I loved that they are stripes and polka dots.
