So it’s the week before halloween and If you’ve bought yourself a pumpkin you’ll probably be deciding how to carve/decorate/paint it over the next few days.
I’ve just put together some pumpkin ideas that I love that will hopefully give you some ideas!
Some of the carved options that you Google can look more daunting then they are, I’ve sucessfully done the two last ones above. I think its all about breaking down the shapes that make them up and checking if you have anything you can use as templates.
Love all of these but The Cookie Monster is the only one I’ve tried myself. We used poster paint which wasn’t great, it needed a good few coats and rubbed off quite easily. I did a quick search just now and people are recommending acrylic paint (you can get a great range of colours for €1.50 in Dealz) or spray paint.
The Pac Man ones need some carving as well as painting but it looks simple enough 🙂
Glow in the dark
I absolutely love these! I haven’t tried these myself yet but all you need is glow in the dark paint and some imagination! Might give one a go next year…
Lastly, we have these guys, easy to do with some glue, card and bandages…..also perfect for covering up any mistakes you might of made trying a carved design 🙂
And there you have it, some great Ideas for your Halloween pumpkins! I’d love to see your pumpkins, show your pics over on the Curious Crayons Facebook page.
