Paint Pumpkins Instead of Carving

One of the best parts about the fall season is Halloween, which calls for pumpkins! Carving pumpkins during this time has become a popular activity among people of all ages. However, for those with small children or those in a small space, carving pumpkins might not be a good idea. Instead, we recommend painting your pumpkins this season instead. Here are a few of our fun easy ideas for painting pumpkins:

  • Faces: Instead of carving a face into your pumpkin, a painting a face might be more interesting. If you paint a face on your pumpkin, you can also have more fun with it and add more detail than if you were just carving it. You could paint a cartoon character’s face or stick with one of the traditional pumpkin faces. Check out this little family of pumpkins:painted pumpkin faces
  • Solid colors: You could even paint the pumpkin a solid color this season. Going with something simple like purple or red could really spruce up your fall décor. One idea is to paint the bottom half of a pumpkin a certain color and then the top half in gold or with glitter.

  • Words: One way to make your Halloween super-chic this year is by painting it a solid color and then painting words or quotes on your pumpkin. You could do something short like “fall” or your monogram; or you could put song lyrics on the pumpkin. It is all up to you.

  • Glow in the dark: Another creative way to paint your pumpkin is with glow in the dark paint. This will sure stand out on a dark front porch! We recommend painting a design or doing polka dots on your pumpkin and then painting the stem as well so you can tell what it is when you turn off the lights. Your kids and the neighbors are sure to love this one.
