How to Decorate Pumpkins
Choose a color and a pattern
Choose colors that are most aligned with the Halloween theme. Next, choose a pattern - the silhouette of a leaf is a festive idea.
Paint your pumpkin
Use the paint you selected earlier to paint your pumpkin. You can color the pumpkin in stripey patterns or make it one solid color.
Trace your pattern onto the pumpkin
Print the leaf shape or pattern. Cut it out and use it to trace the shape perfectly onto the pumpkin before filling in.
Add a few decorative touches
Using clear-drying adhesive, stick some glitter to your pumpkin. Add white lace trim around the bottom for a Thanksgiving touch.
Display your pumpkin
Place your pumpkin near candles for the best effect.
