Personalized Pumpkin Art

Personalized Pumpkin Art
This past week my kids and I took the entire Monday to do nothing but art projects.  I love Fall and I needed some new decorations to spice up my mantle and other areas of my home.  I love to decorate with art made by my kids like here and hereOne of my favorite art projects as a kid was painting pumpkins.  I picked up a couple of fake pumpkins, glitter, stencils and paint for under $20.  Yes I know “glitter is the herpes of the craft world” according to one of my Facebook fans, but sometimes you have to live on the dangerous side and play a little.  :)

A Fun Personalized Project

It was neat to watch my children paint their pumpkins and see their creativity come alive.  I let them put the colors on as they chose and helped with the glitter.  To make the pumpkins even more special I personalized them with a stencil of the letter of their first name.  I painted the T and then the K in black paint and then glittered it.

Craft Supplies:

  • Fake or Real Pumpkin
  • Paint any colors
  • Glitter
  • Stencil of your choosing

Our pumpkins turned out beautifully, and added the personalized touch created special and fun art for my children.  My kids love their pumpkins and I am thankful they are fake because they have rolled down the stairs, slept with, and yes, they did manage to stay on my mantle for all of five seconds.  :)

    My boys did this last year and as we don’t celebrate Halloween its a great way to add a fall touch to our home. I used real pumpkins then turned them into pie which made it a home run in my kids eyes

      Hi Emmy,
      Yes it is a fun way to add fall to your home. I love the pumpkins I plan if not destroyed by winter to save them and bring them out each year. I think I might add the year they were made with a sharpie on the bottom because I love them so much. Having some of your pie sounds good too.
