Paint a Cute Craft Pumpkin for Fall or Halloween


This project is easy and fun to do - have a pumpkin painting party! All you need is inexpensive plain craft pumpkins (I bought mine on sale at Michael's) some craft paint in various colors of your choice, a couple of paintbrushes, some reference photos or drawings and spray or brush-on sealer. Find the drawing or photo you want to use, transfer it to the pumpkin, then start painting, going from dark to light. If you make a mistake you can wipe it off before it dries, or let it dry then paint over it! After it is finished, spray or brush on sealer so it will last for years. Add to your Fall or Halloween display either indoors or outdoors. Fun!
