Pumpkin Painting Ideas

September 30th, 2019 by

You don’t have to be the craftiest person on your block to get in on some fall-inspired decorating action. You don’t even have to go elbows-deep into the cavity of a pumpkin to prepare it for carving. Let your creativity flow free with a simple, no-rules pumpkin painting session that’s fun for kids and adults alike. In the end, you’ll have some front-porch-worthy masterpieces to showcase your seasonal spirit.

Sparkling Squash

With a handful of rhinestones or sequins and a little glue, you can have a glitzed-out gourd that’s ready for its moment to shine. Start with a white pumpkin for maximum visual impact and glue on colorful faux gems. Better yet, forgo the glue altogether and use self-adhesive rhinestones. They’re easy to find at your local crafts store.

Give Your Pumpkin a Manicure

Nail polish is the perfect way to jazz up little pumpkins to add to the mix or display around the house. Select some vivid hues and get creative with this fun, small-scale craft that’s as cheap and easy as it is affordable! Just stock up on bargain-priced polish and let your imagination lead the way.

Freehand Designs

Pumpkins come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, so choose a few different kinds, buy some paint pens and metallic markers, and decorate to your heart’s content. You can trace designs like fall leaves and then fill them in with color, or simply scrawl on some dashes, dots, and doodles in all your favorite colors.

Noteworthy Pumpkins

Chalkboard paint is every crafter’s secret weapon. You can turn your whole pumpkin into a message board by painting the entire surface with chalkboard paint. Or, trace on a season-appropriate silhouette like a witch, a black cat, or a bat, and use chalk to draw on faces and spooky features.
