Love traditional fall decor but need a chic alternative on the average orange pumpkin? Don't fret - pull a fairy godmother and transform your gourds into metallic masterpieces. Simply pick out some favorites from the patch and use metallic spray paints to wash them in a chic, shiny finish. Try using small silver or gold painted baby pumpkins at each place setting for Thanksgiving dinner, or use larger, carved pumpkins set in groupings as votive holders. Just a little paint can glam up even the simplest of pumpkin porch decor!
