Decorated pumpkins


Posted 17th Oct 2016

Picked up some mini maché pumpkins from Hobbycraft for Halloween, but not sure how to use them? Here are a few different designs you can decorate them with, that are all super simple!

 

You will need
Mini mache pumpkins
Black paint
White paint
Gold glitter
Newspaper
Paintbrush
PVA glue

Directions

1. Start by prepping your workspace – lay down some newspaper so you don’t ruin your work surface.

2. Paint your pumpkins using either black or white acrylic paint as a base.

3. Decide what design you want on your pumpkin – some can be left just painted, such as white ones, to look like ghosts!

4. For glitter designs, draw your design on in glue – for example, spots or stripes – and then sprinkle glitter over the top of the design.

5. Leave to dry and then shake off the excess – you may need to use a fine, soft brush to dust off any stubborn bits of glitter!

6. For a fun display, load into a cloche!
