Easy ways to paint Halloween pumpkins

Before you start, cover everything including yourself with protective paper, to make sure you don’t spend more time cleaning than painting. The next step is cleaning the pumpkin, and making sure the surface of the pumpkin must be really nice and clean without any paint. Feel free to use sandpaper if you need to smooth out some of the corners to make them look smooth. Start by applying some paint or stencil over the pumpkin with the theme you want, no need to be afraid of the final result because I only paint pumpkins that I can make myself, so this is perfect for amateurs.

After you have finished painting the pumpkin, place the pumpkin under a place that is protected from wind and direct sunlight which can damage your dryer paint.

Painting pumpkins in bold, unique colors will liven up the atmosphere in the room. Another idea, adding letters or using color blocking can make a big impact without breaking the bank. A splash of paint or watercolor will also make your Halloween pumpkin brighter and more interesting. Consider painting something easy like a simple face, a little monster, or a ghost.
