Create it at home
What you need
- Drop sheet
- Pumpkins in different sizes
- Interior wall paints in white and various colours of your choice (see below for our picks)
- Paintbrushes (we used two sizes, larger for the pumpkins and finer for the letters)
- Wooden craft letters
- All-purpose glue
1. Prep your space
Lay out a drop sheet or newspapers, as the pumpkins can roll and make a mess!
2. Base coat
Paint pumpkins with a base coat of white. Note: we left some unpainted for a natural look.
Play around with different combinations of colour, painting part or all of each pumpkin over the white base.
4. Paint the letters
Paint the letters in your chosen colours, giving them two coats for the best finish.
5. Apply the letters
Once the paint has dried, apply lettering using all-purpose glue.
Time to trick or treat
There you have it, now all you need to do is pop into your local Bunnings to pick up your paint supplies for these spooky pumpkins.
