Beautiful Ocean Blue Pumpkins

Have you noticed all the gorgeous blue pumpkins out there? How could they not remind me of the ocean. They're painted in the most gorgeous shades of blue!

Shaunna of Perfectly Imperfect paints pumpkins every year, so this year she couldn’t wait to try out Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint on them.

These faux Pumpkins also received coats of Annie Sloan's chalk paint. The color is called Greek Blue!

And the muted hues of these Blue Pumpkins remind me of an overcast day at the beach. I want to paint pumpkins blue now!

I really wanted the grey/green pumpkins this year. But haven't been able to find them anywhere. So I'm thinking of painting mine grey. But I don't know if I will because I like them natural. The Annie Sloan painted ones are nice because they are not shiney.

I love some of these coastal pumpkins. Such great colors of blues and greens!! I am going to paint a pumpkin and see how it comes out! Have a great weekend.

These blue pumpkins match my new decor very well. I love them! Toss a few shells around them, and Viola...Coastal Fall!
