I had these unused monster masks that we colored together.
After we colored the mask, we painted the little pumpkins I bought from Safeway. It was my first time ever painting or decorating a pumpkin, so I made a ton of mistakes. I definitely learned from them. I think there’s a particular kind of paint I’m supposed to use on a pumpkin, but I just used whatever I had (I don’t remember what kind of paint I used). The paint was too thin, so I did 3 coats on each pumpkin.
I was in the middle of painting a second coat on both pumpkins until he said, “I want to paint.”, so I let him finish his pumpkin off.
I spent extra time working on my niece’s pumpkin. I used mod podge & gold glitter for the creases.
I put stickers on the pumpkins & they kept drying/falling off. My original thought was to just paint them, but next time I’ll do my research on what kind of material I should be using. Have you ever painted or decorated a pumpkin? What materials did you use? Please leave suggestions below! (:
