Don’t you love these painted pumpkins?
We bought several of these pumpkins at our local grocery store the other day. It was incredibly inexpensive, including bigger size pumpkins too.
I loved looking at these pumpkins in front of my house, but I felt I need to make them little more attractive.
I got inspired by seeing some painted pumpkins in my neighborhood.
I finished this project in about 30 minutes while my hubby took the kids to the park.
Although this actually could have been a great crafting project with my little ones..
Show me one kid who doesn’t like to paint and get messy. Ha.
This is what I started with:
 Painted Pumpkins (1 of 26)
What I used for this easy, fun project:
– pumpkins
-white paint
– sharpie
-fabric and twine to embellish
– mod podge { exterior }

I started my project with painting polka dots on my biggest pumpkin.
 Used a small paint brush and my off white paint.

 Using my sharpie, I draw out my BOO word, one letter on each pumpkin.
To make sure the white paint is safe on my pumpkins, and could be left out in the rain too –
I used
 MOD PODGE
 to seal the paint.
Awesome!

I chose the same dotted fabric that I used on my front door Halloween wreath to tie a bow on the top of the pumpkin.
And Tada!
Beautiful painted Pumpkin is done!

  1. This is a great site and I love all the pumpkins! My family and I love doing activities like this when Halloween comes around. We carve pumpkins every year and my kids love it. I also like to take my boys to a Haunted attraction because they like all the scary costumes and figures. We try to visit a different site each year. However, we always visit Night of Terror because it is Reply
