A few days ago, I posted my progress so far on my carved fake pumpkin table number centerpieces. They looked like this:
They seemed a little blah to me. After a trip to Michaels and a few nights spent painting (and griping over what little light I had to work in), here’s an updated picture of the pumpkins:
Again, please excuse the crazy bedspread and the out of order numbers (apologies to you OCD bees!).
I think the metallic paint is an improvement over the glaring fake orange. However, now my main concern is this:
Up close, they look a little amatuer-ish to me (insert more gripes about poor lighting here). My fiance thinks I’m being crazy and that they look fine, but I’m tempted to slap another coat of paint on these things. Any thoughts?

Your new ones look great! I love fall-themed weddings

I’d probably spray paint them to lose all the brush marks. 2 light coats should do it.

I love how youve painted them metallic!!!
The brush strokes are definitely visable in the close-ups.
How much light are you having at your reception? If it is going to be pretty dim – then I wouldnt worry about it! No one will notice in candle light!
If you are having normal lighting at your reception – I would probably touch them up!

Wow. Put one more coat of paint on them just to be safe. But otherwise they look amazing. I love pumpkins and even though I love my beach themed wedding, I really like the idea of fall theme with pumpkin centerpieces and yours look great!

Here is a quick (and cluttered) mock-up of our centerpieces:
The smaller tealights are gold, bronze, and orange glitter.
