Birthday Cake Caramel Pumpkins + a GIVEAWAY!

One of my favorite things to do when fall comes around is to decorate pumpkins, and ever since I came across this adorable box of birthday cake caramels while browsing at Sugarfina, I thought it would be really fun to paint cute little white pumpkins to look like the caramels, and I'm pretty happy with the results! It's super easy to do, too!


 One medium sized paintbrush, preferably a large area flat brush
Acrylic Paint in your three favorite colors for the confetti, and one tube of white acrylic paint
Small white pumpkins (I purchased 8-10)
A package of small circular foam stamps (I found them in the section where the tie dye stuff is, and they come in all different sizes)

(I purchased all craft supplies from Michael's, and the pumpkins from Trader Joe's


1) Get out your white paint, put some of it into a disposable bowl or if you have a reusable empty paint palette, squirt it in there
2) Take your brush, dip it into the paint, and then cover the whole pumpkin in that white paint, leaving your stems bare. You'll want to do this to all of them, and make sure to get the white paint completely covering each one, getting as close to the bottom as possible.
3) Let the pumpkins dry overnight.
4) When they're all dry, start stamping on your confetti! There's no special order to it. You can make the colors as random as possible and they can be placed in any spot! I made some of mine overlap, just how real confetti would look if it was thrown around.

And that's it! Acrylic Paint dries really fast, and also washes off with water while still wet, so be wary of that. 

Now, for the fun part... I'm giving away a box of these yummy Sugarfina Birthday Cake Caramels to three lucky people! Just head on over to my Instagram page to enter (@circusofcakes). Yay! GOOD LUCK!
