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
Or a sweet message and a little twine
You could express your love of donuts
Or your love for raisins and greens if that’s more your thing
Represent your favorite team
Take on a classic work of art
Pay tribute to fall’s real MVP
Share your love for nature
Keep things feminine and elegant
Hoo wouldn’t love this owl-dorable pumpkin?
Don’t forget about the Teal Pumpkin Project
A plain teal pumpkin on your doorstep lets trick-or-treaters know you are providing treats that are safe for children with food allergies!
Want to keep your painted pumpkin forever? Easy! Just use a craft pumpkin instead so you can put your creation out every year.
