It’s that time of year again! The weather is getting cooler, and the smell of pumpkin spice is in the air! It’s Fall Ya’ll!!! Fall means pumpkins, gourds, hay bales, scarecrows and so much more. To me pumpkins are the fun part! Every year I decorate pumpkins. Usually I just carve them but this year, thanks to Pinterest I painted them! Chevron is still all the rage and I for one am obsessed with it. I decided to paint one of my large pumpkins in chevron print and it was easy just took about 20 minutes to do. All you need is painter’s tape, a can of spray paint and the pumpkin! Here’s a step by step of how to DIY:
The tricky part is taping the pumpkin. It’s just trial and error. It took me about 10 minutes to figure it out. It should look something like this once it’s all taped up.
Next you just spray paint it, let it dry and then remove the tape. Once you do that…voila!
You can also just use an acrylic paint and a small brush and do some fun designs by hand. I love my little spider web pumpkin. I added a fake spider just for a fun effect.
The lines aren’t perfect on my mini chevron pumpkin but it looks cute!
I had some left over chalkboard paint, so I thought “why not put chalkboard paint on a pumpkin?” This is an idea I recommend to all the momma’s reading the blog. Kid’s LOVE it! My son Presley loves writing on them. You can even set them out and do a countdown of the days until Halloween. Kids can draw faces on them time and time again. The ideas are endless. All you need is a pumpkin, chalkboard paint and some chalk!
Once you paint the pumpkin just let it dry then let the kid’s go crazy!
This is the finished product!
Of course it’s not Halloween without a pumpkin with a face.
I hope this helped you if you’re in a rut trying to decide how to decorate your pumpkin’s this year!
