HOW TO PAINT PUMPKINS STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

STEP ONE: Prepare Work Area

Set up your work area. Lay down a drop cloth or newspaper to protect your work surface.

STEP TWO: Prep Your Pumpkin

Prepare your pumpkin for painting. Make sure it’s free of bruises and blemishes. Use a soft cloth to gently wipe off any dirt or debris.

STEP THREE: Apply Base Sealer Coat

Apply sealer to your pumpkin. Because the pumpkin is round, you will need to work on it one-half at a time. Apply the sealer to the first half, allow to dry, then apply to the second half. Give the second half time to dry before moving to the next step.

STEP FOUR: Time to Paint!

I should have forewarned you that this is a day long process – but it’s fun, so it’s okay! Apply the paint the same way you did the sealer, working on the pumpkin one half at a time. Allow the first half to completely dry before painting the second half. Allow the second half to dry.

At this point, take a good look at your work. Do you need a second coat? If so, repeat this step.

STEP FIVE: Apply Top Sealer Coat

Same instructions as step three above.

STEP SIX: Decorate

At this point, you might be done, especially if you painted a design on your pumpkin in step four. On the other hand, the real fun may just be starting – if so, pull out your hot glue gun, duct tape, craft foam, googly eyes, or whatever you had in mind – and decorate!
