DIY Marbled Indigo Pumpkins

You know we have a thing for indigo, right? When it came time to start decorating pumpkins this year, we had to give them the indigo treatment. One of our favorite projects to date was our Marbled Indigo Easter Eggs. You would not believe how many times that post has been viewed! We had to give this same treatment to pumpkins. The indigo hue would look best on white so we opted to use the mini white pumpkins.

There is something so sweet and almost delicate about the mini white pumpkins. A few weeks ago I picked up some mini pumpkins at the grocery. I also picked up some faux white pumpkins from Amazon. I was curious to see which would take the marbling treatment the best. Can you tell which ones were the faux pumpkins?

Steps

  1. Fill a plastic container 3/4 full with lukewarm water (If the water is too cold the nail polish will sink). Add about 4 or 5 drops of indigo blue nail polish.
  2. Use a wood stick to stir the nail polish on top of the water.
  3. Dip the pumpkin in the water and spin a bit.
  4. Remove from water and dry on wax paper. Flip pumpkin after 20 mins to dry on the other side.
