DIY: Halloween Painted Pumpkins

DIY: Halloween Painted Pumpkins

Spooky Stuff ☾

Decorating pumpkins is a must for getting into the Halloween spirit, but we didn't want to deal with all the mess of carving this year! We took a twist on our usual tradition and painted our pumpkins in stead. Not only is this DIY easy and free of mess, but you can get even more creative with your pumpkin designs and truly dive into the detail with paint!

Here's what you need: 

  • Assorted pumpkins
  • Paint brushes
  • Acrylic paint (gold sparkle paint is a MUST)
  • Paint pens
  • Cup of water
  • Paint palette or paper plate
  • Sharpie pen

Pick Your Perfect Pumpkins

Find your mini pumpkin family at a local pumpkin patch or grocery store! Each pumpkin is unique and special in it's own way, it can be so hard to decide. We picked pumpkins with longer stems so we could paint those as well. Try to get different shapes and sizes so you can stack them on display! 

Halloween Mood

Light up fall scented candles, play your fave Halloween themed songs, and paint the night away! (We were jammin' to this fun Halloween Spotify Playlist). You can use a sharpie to pre-draw your designs to guide you as you paint. We decided to stick to a celestial theme with all our pumpkins! ☆

The best part about painting your pumpkins is that if you mess up, you can just let it dry and paint it over. Carving isn't always this forgiving!
