Distressed Pumpkin Home Décor Project

My local craft store is full of leaves, flowers, and home décor items that could really use some better coloring. My solution? Get out my Ranger color mediums and customize! This project is quick, easy, and requires no adhesive. Thanks to my paints, stains, and mists I have a unique home décor piece that will grace my mantle this fall – and for many years to come. -May Flaum
