Happy fall everyone! Even though the past few weeks have been a little crazy-busy for me, I squeezed time in to make something for fall. I decided to try my hand at marbling. This is a popular trend all over Pinterest, so why not give these easy marbled pumpkins a try?
Once all of the pumpkins were dry I went thru my nail polish and chose colors that I felt would complement the painted pumpkins. This is where you could really get creative, you could use your favorite team colors, or maybe black polish for a little spookier feel.
You are going to want to use a container that you are OK with throwing out afterwards. Also, because I didn’t realize this until later, pick a container that is just slightly larger than your pumpkin, you will get better results.
Then just dip the part of the pumpkin that you want the polish to stick to. The polish floats on top of the water, which relates to what I mentioned earlier about picking a container that is only slightly larger than your pumpkin. I chose a large container for these and the polish couldn’t wrap around the pumpkin like I would have liked.
You can see a line where the polish just stops. So, if you want the marble affect to cover more of your pumpkin, just choose a container slightly larger than your pumpkin and make sure your pumpkin doesn’t touch the bottom of it.
Do this in a well ventilated area. I used about half of each bottle of nail polish, so be prepared for the fumes.
Use containers and stirs that you don’t want to keep. It is too hard to get the nail polish off.
This is addicting people! The marbleizing part only takes about 15 minutes total, you WILL start looking around your house to see what else you can do this to.
Be creative! This craft would be awesome for a fall wedding or baby shower. Maybe white pumpkins with gold polish? Or maybe your favorite sports team? Go Steelers!!
