Fall is all about pumpkins — Pumpkin Spice Lattes, pumpkin pie and pumpkin decor. This year, instead of simply carving your pumpkin, try painting it instead! There are so many ways to create a gorgeous painted pumpkin to display in your home, and it’s so easy.

All you need to do is clean and dry your pumpkin, add a sealant or varnish on it before you start, use acrylics to paint your design and then add a top coat of sealer or varnish when you’re done.

We’ve gathered some unique painted pumpkins to give you a little inspiration this season.

Never underestimate the power of a simple design
