Easy Reverse Painted Pumpkins

101 Views
I had this idea last fall after seeing some really beautiful pumpkins that had been completely painted in one color, stem and all. I think that’s a really nice, elegant look and this is just a little bit of a fun twist on that!
Time: 15 Minutes Cost: $5 Difficulty: Easy
Basically, you paint your pumpkin, but first you mask off a face or a design so that the original orange from the pumpkin shows through a little bit.

Start out with a pumpkin or several. The more dramatically-stemmed your pumpkins are, the better in my opinion. You’ll also need some chalky paint.
Next you’ll need to mask off your design. If you have a fancy vinyl cutting machine, by all means use it! I don’t so I like to use painter’s tape for this and it works just fine! I also decided to experiment with some little dot stickers that I had leftover from a garage sale this summer just to see what happened!

Stick your design pieces on your pumpkin and start painting! I’m using white, but of course, use any color you like.
