I found a regular old .99 cent pumpkin at the grocery store, and used them for our pumpkin makeover.

Materials:

How To Make Silver Pumpkins

I sprayed the bottoms of the orange and white pumpkins first and let them dry.

Then I sprayed the tops, and while the silver was still wet I used a tooth brush to add some black speckles, with some black craft paint.  I ran my finger over the toothbrush to flick it, and spray black dots onto the silver paint.

I few times I got a line rather than a speckle, so I just blotted it with a rag and started over.

It was super easy, and I really like the effect, something similar to a mercury glass.
