Painted Pumpkins

Pumpkins don’t need to be carved anymore!  If you want to get pumpkins now and decorate them then paint them.  They will last a lot longer then carving a pumpkin.  You can get really creative.  I have helped you with these fun ideas!

FOOTBALL PUMPKIN

Will need to find a tall skinny one to make this work.  Paint it all brown (recommend spray paint) then take a paint brush after brown has dried and paint the white lines.  You can dress it up if you want with hot glueing decorations on the top.

STENCIL/STICKER OR VINYL  NAMES

Simply spray paint your pumpkins whatever color you would like.  Then you have your choice of either using a stencil, vinyl sticker or a large regular sticker to place on pumpkin.  If using a regular sticker you might want to put a coat of clear spray paint over it to seal the sticker on there when all done.

CANDY CORN PUMPKINS

This is actually quite easy but no do overs.  :)  Just using white and yellow spray paint.  Start with one color and tilt on side.  Could use some newspaper and tape to make sure you don’t mess up.  Remember to do a light coat so it doesn’t drip.  Then you can go over it again once it dries.  Should only have to do 2 coats.  If you want spray complete pumpkin with a clear coat to keep that pumpkin lasting longer!

JEWELED PUMPKIN

This is fun and even your kids can help!  Spray paint your pumpkin any color you want then go to your local craft store or even the Dollar Tree has these cheap plastic jewels.  Even if they are sticker ones I would suggest glueing them on. Using something like E600 or Gorilla glue to make sure they stick on through the entire month!  Glam pumpkin!
