I love to paint pumpkins! I think the WHITE is so chic and almost poetic.

You will need:


Paint brush


Flat white paint, tempra paint works even!

  1. Spread your newspaper so you don't get paint everywhere. Trust me, I'm telling you this from experience!
  2. Simply paint a nice coat of white paint over your pumpkin.
  3. Allow to dry completely.
  4. Repeat with a second coat if needed.


Pumpkins that have been painted don't have a very long life. So check them often, and don't make them too far ahead of your desired use. You can also use a lifelike fake pumpkin instead.
