DIY Painted Pumpkins

IMG_7480

 

This is a super cute idea to decorate your room with pumpkins before it’s time to carve them. You can really personalise it with your own colours to match your room and your own design.

 

What you will need:

  • A Pumpkin *you could also use squash, those look cute too because they have so many different shapes and sizes*
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Painted Markers

 

First cover the pumpkin in two layers of paint (even the stem) then let it dry.

Then paint it with the paint markers with whatever design you like. I decided to go for a dotted design inspired by Yoyoi Kusama.

Another idea is to remove the stem and put a doorknob

I got these beautiful doorknobs at Zara Home

Using a small drill I drilled a hole in the pumpkin then screwed in the doorknob.

Voila! I placed these all over my room to add a little pop of colour and fall cuteness!
