Marbled Pumpkins

I wanted to try my hand at marbling something with nail polish.  I still had some faux pumpkins around that I had picked up from the dollar store, so I thought I’d give it a shot! I think they turned out pretty unique, I definitely like the black and white one better. I did try this with a plate first and it was a total fail.

I was shocked at how easy it was! All you need is warm water and some nail polish.

I just did black, but you could definitely add in a few colors. I lined a container with foil just so it didn’t get ruined and filled it up with warm water. Then, I poured in some nail polish.

Then, I just took the pumpkin and kind of swirled it around until it was covered in the weird nail polish slime.

Let it dry and you are done! The black and white pumpkin looks more marbled. The gold one just kind of looks like it has weird black splotches on it. But it still works for fall. Maybe it looks like a spider web? I’ll say that I meant for it to look like a spider web.
