Turn an ordinary pumpkin, or fake pumpkin, into a personalized decoration for your home or doorstep with a little paint and some thumbtacks! Show off your family initials, your house number or a special image with this fun project.
Things to do:
1. On a covered and well-ventilated work surface, spray the pumpkin with three thin coats of paint all over, including the underside, allowing each coat to dry before applying the next.
2. Using your paintbrush, coat the stem of the pumpkin with the craft paint.
3. Sketch your shape, address or initial onto the pumpkin with the pencil and then follow the line with overlapping pushpins, thickening some of the areas with more than one row of pins to add dimension.
