Check out these DIY Halloween pumpkins for an inexpensive way to decorate this season.
What you’ll need:
4 pumpkins (2 large & 2 medium)
Black & white paint (we used acrylic)
Purple puff paint
Paint brushes & a round sponge
10 sheets of self-adhesive pearl stickers (5 medium & 5 small)
Head to your local grocery store or pumpkin patch and choose four pumpkins of varying sizes.
Next, wipe off the pumpkins with a damp paper towel. Once dry, paint the two larger pumpkins black and one of the medium pumpkins white. (They may need several coats of paint.)
For the pearly web pumpkin, use the medium pearl stickers to create the vertical lines of the web.
The small pearl stickers are perfect for the horizontal arches. To finish this look, use tacky glue to adhere the spider decoration.
For the other large black pumpkin, dot purple puff paint to create a swirled pattern. Or, personalize it by painting your own design!
Incorporate the different colors of your large pumpkins using the designs on the medium two. Keep one of them a natural orange, with black circles sponged on it. Then sponge the purple puff paint onto the white pumpkin. Alternate the pumpkin stems with purple and black paint to help tie all four pumpkins together.
