Pumpkin Painting Ideas
To complete our DIY decorated pumpkin roundup, I’ve included the 4th and final tutorial. Make your own chalkboard pumpkin!
Making a chalkboard pumpkin is as easy as pie! To get this pumpkin painting tutorial started you will need to gather a few supplies.
To begin, clean your pumpkin with a damp cloth and allow time to dry. Give your chalkboard paint a good shake, and pour a workable amount into a bowl or container. Protect your work surface from paint by covering with paper or foil.
Using a foam brush, apply the chalkboard paint to the outside of your pumpkin. Take care in all the cracks and bumps. Allow first coat to dry, and then repeat the process again.
Allow plenty of time for your pumpkin to completely dry! If you try to draw on your pumpkin too soon, the chalk will scrape off the paint and you will have to begin your process again!
Once your chalkboard pumpkin is dry, draw a design or message using chalk on your pumpkin. You can dress it up with a face, or express yourself with a cheerful Halloween message!
Once your design is complete, display your pumpkin and jazz up your space!
A chalkboard pumpkin is the perfect way to add a bit of unique style to your Halloween décor! This no carve pumpkin decorating idea is a nice way to show off your creativity.
