Prettied up Pumpkins!

We are well into haunting season with Halloween right around the corner! If you’re anything like me, you can only take so much orange, so why not jazz up some pumpkins in a fun and colorful way? This simple DIY is a great way to add a touch of color to your Halloween festivities.

To get started, you’ll need:

• Pumpkins

• Acrylic Paint

• Paint Brushes

• Glitter and/or sequins

• Glue

Since the pumpkins are a darker orange color, it is easier to prime them by painting them a lighter color first. This really allows for the top colors to be vibrant!

After the base coat has dried, have fun creating brush strokes, watercolor/marble effect patterns on your pumpkins! Mix it up and have some fun with it!

Add embellishments. I used glitter on the pumpkin stems and sequins on the sides for a little extra sparkle. 

And there you have it! Prettied up pumpkins! 

Have a fun and safe Halloween!
