Boo Pumpkin

Boo Pumpkin

In the blink of an eye, the season of ghosts and goblins will be here! So, to help you get ready for that, I have a fun and easy pumpkin project for you. (Yep, another pumpkin project…I told you I loved fall and pumpkins in an earlier post, LOL)

To create this fun and easy pumpkin, here is what you will need:

DecoArt Americana Paint:
Jack-o-Lantern
Avocado
Lamp Black
Espresso
Margarita
DecoArt Neons:
Torrid Orange
Other Supplies:
Tall Resin Pumpkin
Halloween Word Mix Stencil
Identi Pen Black
Pencil
Raffia or ribbon
Highlighter Brush
Acrylic Sealer Finisher Gloss Spray

To start, paint your pumpkin with Jack-o-Lantern, this may take a few coats, so be patient and let it dry between coats. Paint the stem Avocado. With your 3/4″ Highlighter brush and Torrid Orange, highlight each raised section of the pumpkin. I did several coats of this gradually building the color. With your 1/2″ Highlighter and Espresso, rub gently into the grooves of the pumpkin. Start light, you can always build your shadow as you go if you prefer it darker. I highlighted the stem with Margarita using my 1/4″ Highlighter brush.

The next step is to take your stencil and center it where you would like on the front of your pumpkin. I used a pencil and lightly traced the word “Boo”, centering the middle “o” with the stem. Using the Identi Pen, I carefully outlined the words first before filling them in with a round brush and Lamp Black. After the words are dry, spray with your favorite varnish. I chose to use a satin varnish to give my pumpkin a shiny glow. The last thing was I made a bow out of raffia and tied it to the stem. You can choose to use ribbon in Halloween colors or to decorate the top any way you want…this is where you can express yourself even more. (You could add black and orange ribbon with artificial web and a spider, the options are endless, just use your imagination)

Happy Painting!
