What can I say, the splatter trend has got me. I could splatter anything home decor and jewelry if it was for me! Now, not everybody might be into this look, and I totally understand, but if you’re reading this article it’s because you’re a splatter junkie like me! My boyfriend is of the opposite idea, it looks messy therefore it’s ugly. I say the randomness of the effect intrigues me and makes everything look minimal chic, with an artsy vibe. Oh please darling, let me splatter our white chairs!
Jokes apart, pumpkin decor is one of our fave, perfect for Halloween period and that you can easily keep it up and show it off a few week after also. On the other hand if you’re looking for a Halloween night creepy decor, it’s easy to tweak this tutorial into a bloody disaster. Just use blood red paint.
To make this modern splatter pumkin you’ll need:
- small or medium pumpkin
- white spray paint
- black acrylic paint
Start by painting all of your pumpkin white. You’ll probably need 2 or 3 layers of paint. Let dry well between each layer or you’ll get paint drops everywhere.
The splatter effect is as fast as beautiful to create, but very messy: make sure you protect the surface you work on and also consider adding protective vertical panels on most sides. Prepare a mixture of 1/2 paint and 1/2 water, stirr well, then just soak your brush and, helping yourself with the finger like shown in the picture below, splatter randomly ink. For bigger drops soak more, smaller drops require less paint.
So much fun! Set aside and let dry for 1h as major drops make take more time to completely dry. How cute is the effect? Modern and minimal home decor served.
