Painted Pumpkin DIY


Today's project is a very simple one. Continuing with fall décor, I will be showing you how I painted a pumpkin for my front porch. I find painted pumpkins much preferable to carved ones because they last so much longer and have much less mess.


You will need:

-A pumpkin

-Two colors of craft paint

-A paintbrush

-Spray glitter

step 1

First, I painted my pumpkin an off-white color. It will probably take you a couple of coats in order to get an even solid color.

white pumpkin

This is what mine looked like after about 3 coats of craft paint.

step 2

I chose to draw a petal/ teardrop shape with my second color of paint. I made these all the way around the pumpkin.

grey and white

Like the white paint, your second color may need more than one layer in order to cover evenly.

step 3

Now for the fun part! Once my pumpkin was completely dry, I spray painted it with gold glitter to add a fun touch.


What do you luvvies think? It definitely added some interest to my porch, though I fear the number of pumpkins I have sitting out there will only grow!
