As much as I love the tradition of carving pumpkins every Fall, I don’t love the mess that comes with it. This year, instead of handling the gooey, disgusting insides of pumpkins, I’ve decided to paint them! Today, I’m sharing how I created a cute and simple brushstroke painted pumpkin so you can make one too!

What To Do:

1. Using the 3/4 inch paint brush, paint your entire pumpkin white.

2. While the white paint is drying, practice a few brushstrokes on a scrap piece of paper.

3. Following the lines on the pumpkin, paint vertical stripes. You’ll want to push down ever so slightly to get all the paint off the brush and onto the pumpkin, however don’t press so hard that you widen the stripes.

4. Using the same technique, paint horizontal stripes. Let it dry.

The great thing about this design is it doesn’t have to be perfect. In fact, I think the imperfections make it look even better!

Happy pumpkin painting!

      Thank you so much Julie! I’ve had painted pumpkins last until December before. In my experience, orange pumpkins last the longest when painted.
