Halloween DIY | Painted Pumpkin


I've never done any Halloween crafts, bar inexpertly hacking up a few pumpkins, and so this year I thought I would give it a go. I'm sadly a bit too old to go all out but I saw some classy crafts online and decided to try it! There are some amazing crafters out there but I've stuck to simple and effective! Read on to find out how I got on...

You Will Need
1 Pumpkin (I used a medium size)
Sealer
White Paint
Paintbrush
Newspaper
Stand (optional)

To Make
1) Wash and thoroughly dry the pumpkin then lay out on some newspaper and set on a stand. I used the top of a candle tin for mine
2) Apply sealer to the surface (you don't have to do this but it ensures that the paint will apply more smoothly)
3) Paint the pumpkin and leave to dry. Re-paint if necessary 



Thanks for reading :)

Have you tried any Halloween crafts?

  16. That's so beautiful and a different way to decorate Halloween, not with the obvious pumpkin (which I also like), but painted! A very nice idea! Hope you are having a nice day!
