Video Tutorial
  1. Make sure your pumpkins are clean and free of any dust.
  2. Choose your color palette – have fun with it!
  3. Use painter’s tape to mask off any sections of your pumpkins you do not want painted. For this one, I went with a striped motif on the bottom pumpkin, so to create this design, run strips of tape vertically and evenly spaced around pumpkin.
  4. Cover top portions of pumpkin with plastic and tape to protect from overspray.
  5. Spray several light coats of Black Tie Affair over the areas in between vertical tape strips. When you are happy with the coverage, remove tape and let dry.
  6. Cover the painted stripe section of the pumpkin with plastic to protect from overspray, as well as the middle section if leaving unpainted like this project.
  7. For the top section, spray bursts of Orange Slice and Black Tie Affair around pumpkin and let dry.
  8. Finish your pumpkin by tying a big Halloween-colored bow around it!
All Finished!

Now you have a fun and simple Halloween decor piece for your porch!
