Carving pumpkins can be fun, but it’s also messy and greatly reduces the “shelf life” of your pumpkin. Paint offers a fun alternative with a wide range of possibilities, from funky to glam.
You can stay traditional with faces or ghostly scenes, paint patterns like stripes or polka dots, dip your pumpkin for a colorblock effect, or let your kids go crazy for an “abstract” look. Metallic paints instantly add a touch of WOW and if you’re really feeling crazy… glitter.
We’ve rounded up some ideas from Pinterest to get you started with ideas for your own painted pumpkin!
