Does your crew love to paint pumpkins?
Some years we carve them, some years we paint, but this year Will and I tried three different methods for painting our pumpkins that we want to share!
I am not the most talented artist by ANY means, but I thought these turned out cute!
Paint your ghost shape on your pumpkin. The beauty of these is that they do not have to be perfect or exactly the same. Let the ghost shape dry. Grab a small bush and dot on the eyes and mouth.
Squeeze Bottle Method
Will loved this, and it was less messy than just painting with a brush.
We chose to spray paint our pumpkin white first so that the color would show up better!
Once the spray paint is dry put your choice of colors into squeeze bottles.
Squeeze your paint onto the pumpkins at the stem, letting the color run down. Let it dry well.
Painter’s Tape Method
Put your painter’s tape in the desired pattern on your pumpkin. Spray paint and let it dry. We were a little disappointed that out paint bled a little on these, but we still had fun!
We grabbed all of our supplies at Walmart. They always make shopping easy, and had a wide variety of supplies that helped get our creative juices flowing! Whether you choose to use one of these methods, or come up with your own, you can always count on Walmart for one stop shopping.
