Look! Jon's Chic Pumpkin Centerpiece

Jon from Happy Mundane likes to do a new take on a pumpkin centerpiece each year for his fall table. We love the graphic approach he took with this year's pumpkins, stylishly mixing neon yellow with khaki and white. Check out some DIY details after the jump...

At first Jon tried poster paint, but it wasn't producing the flat, opaque finish he wanted. So he ended up using spray paint over primer, which made a pleasingly matte surface.

For the large pumpkin, Jon created a random pattern with drafting tape and spray-painted the pumpkin white. We love the way they all came together in the end. And the little marble mushrooms were a very nice touch, adding a harvest-inspired accent to this non-traditional autumn tablescape.
