Faux Mercury Glass Pumpkins

Potterybarn sells these lovely Mercury Glass Pumpkins. They're beautiful, but pretty pricey...

...and they're glass. So chances of them lasting a long time are very slim.

{The DIY Show Off} has a tutorial and great idea for making some similar pretty pumpkins at a much cheaper price. They are also a lot more durable than glass...She just spray painted some plastic pumpkins silver.And then lightly flicked them with brown paint and a toothbrush so they looked splotchy like this:

The result is beautiful!

They may not be glass, but I still think they make a really pretty fall decoration.

Don't you?
