30+ Pumpkin Painting Ideas! Learn fun ways to dress up your pumpkins this season!
Pumpkin painting is a fun craft for a group, or by yourself when you have a little time and are feeling like creating something cute! Most of these ideas have tutorials in their post, so be sure to click the blue/gray links to be taken to the original source. You can use real or faux pumpkins, but I think you’ll find that faux pumpkins are a better choice because you’ll want to keep your pumpkin for longer than one season. I know I do, anyway! 😉 You can find lots of different sizes of pumpkins at stores, and some of these tutorials have the exact pumpkin link for you to order online. Happy Pumpkin Season!
