Getting creative with your pumpkins is fun, but let's face it, not all of us should be trusted with a sharp knife in our hands! But there is more to pumpkin decoration than cutting out some triangles and a jagged mouth - painting your pumpkins and creating your own creepy decorations is highly effective and brings your own unique design and style to your decor!
Woodubend HQ created this stunning pumpkin with a twist usingPosh Chalk Decoupage Paper - Irises in Gold, Posh Chalk Infusorand Woodubend Trims and Mouldings. It was finished with some gorgeous added metallic colours using Posh Chalk Pastes, Patinas and Pigments - I bet none of your neighbours have a pumpkin quite like this!
How cute are these painted pumpkin buckets created by Fusion Mineral Paint? They are perfect for little ones to collect their treats. You can pick their favourite colour palette to make their bespoke treat bucket!
I love this creepy framed picture crafted by Woodubend HQ! They used the Scarlet Harlequin Decoupage Paper as their featured image and created the frame by adding Woodubend Trims and Posh Chalk Pastes and Pigments to a plain A4 Ikea frame!
For something a bit plainer but just as gorgeous how about painting your pumpkin with Posh Chalk Metallic Paste in Violet? Or recreate Fusion Mineral Paint's Pink Ombre Pumpkins by taking a white paint and 2 extremes of colour and mixing them in different quantities to create a gradient of colour from darkest to lightest!
There are no rules to pumpkin painting - grab your paint and have some fun!
