How to Make a Gold Ceramic Pumpkin

Difficulty Beginner
Budget < £10
Time < 1 hour

Ceramic tea light holders are a great way to add a spooky atmosphere to any Halloween party, and this ceramic pumpkin can be used inside or out.

Metallics are a continuing trend, so I’ve kept it simple and used metallic spray paint to decorate my pumpkin, but you could also use metallic acrylic paint, or even gold leaf for an extra decadent look.

How to make


Start by covering your work surface in a protective layer of newspaper, secure to the surface using masking tape.


Start by spraying the top of the pumpkin, making sure to give it a nice even coat. Leave to dry.


Rest the pumpkin on the stalk section, to allow you to be able to spray the underside of the pumpkin. Leave to dry.


Add LED tealights to the inside of the pumpkin.


Personalising your Pumpkin: There are lots of different ways in which you can further personalise your pumpkin, from adding adhesive gems, to painting on black glitter spiders. Just make sure to keep in mind with the materials that you choose to use, whether they are suitable for the area in which you are intending to place the pumpkin, for example inside or outside.
