Hmm…how to paint an abstract pumpkin?
No, how to EASILY paint an abstract pumpkin!
I’VE GOT YOU!
Allow me to reminisce for a moment.
My childhood memory of fall pumpkins consists of carving my Halloween pumpkins: two triangles for eyes, one triangle for a nose, and a mouth with one straggly tooth. (Two straggly teeth if I was feeling particularly creative!)
Creativity with pumpkins decorating has exploded and I couldn’t be happier!
Pumpkin love begins in September and continues through Thanksgiving. There are so many amazing and creative ways to decorate a pumpkin to go with your home decor and holiday decorating.
I think I need to “up” my childhood version of decorated pumpkin and offer something a little more in line with my home and love of color.
Yup! That is my creative contribution!
Think about….there are zillion colors to choose from and you can pick up a bottle inexpensively at any grocery or drug store.
Not making a connection between a pumpkin and nail polish?
Let’s romanticize it a bit…how about painting an ABSTRACT pumpkin using nail polish!
Well, let me show you!
This is a pretty straightforward list…
- Nail polish – Go with whatever color you like! I opted for OPI nail polish in “Russian Navy”. ( you can see it here) Choose your favorite color!
- Plastic container
- Wood stir stick (I ended up not using it but it might work for you.)
- Pumpkins (These can be real or faux. I found some at the dollar store but their overall color was too yellowish for me. The ones I ended up using are from Amazon and I loved how crisp white they are. I even love their curly stems! You can see them here.)
- Wax paper
