Pumpkin painting fun

Over the weekend we had a lot of fun with the pumpkins we've gathered this fall season. Through our visits to the farm for some apple picking and visiting the local farmers market we've built up quite a nice collection of pumpkins and gourds.

We finally set aside some time to play around. We carved a few, but then decided to experiment with painting on some and these are the fun results.

Our little guy went straight for the glow-in the dark paint. Painting pumpkins is a safer alternative for the kids who might find it challenging carving with sharp tools.

We chose to paint this pumpkin with metallic teal blue paint and adding dimensional red dots.

This one was created by masking tape off areas and painting the top part black and the bottom part is painted first with white paint with added glow in the dark glitter and of course embellished with dots. Everything looks better with dots!

Boo! This is our little ghost gourd. His unique shape helped us choose what he would become.

Here is our colorful collection displayed under our tree in kitchen for all to enjoy!
Have you painted any pumpkins?

  1. LOVE this!! Our kids are so lucky to have all of these wonderful supplies...paint, clay, glue, paper, etc. at their finger tips. Raising them in a house with creativity is a wonderful gift to give them...yes, it gets messy, but so worth it!! Your pumpkins are gorgeous! I think that my family will be doing some pumpkin painting on saturday/sunday while we are shut in during the snow storm!!!
