This is a fun way to decorate a pumpkin without the mess of carving! A great project for kids to do, and play with, you can let them go to town with their pumpkin decorating over and over again. You can do this project with either a real or fake pumpkin but a fake pumpkin will certainly last longer and can be used over many years.
Things to do:
1. Tape off the stem of the pumpkin, smoothing down the edges so that the paint doesn’t seep under.
2. Coat the pumpkin with two or three thin layers of paint, allowing each to dry before the next.
3. Let the paint cure overnight before removing the tape and decorating with chalk.
