This year I wanted to try my hand at whimsical painted pumpkins for my porch. I purchased a large orange pumpkin.
I used black acrylic craft paint that I purchased at Michaels to achieve this look.
For the orange and black polka dot pumpkin, I used a lid from a container of glitter to trace a circle with a black marker. Decide what size dots you want and look around the house for something you can use to trace the circle. I then painted inside the circle with the black craft paint, let it dry and painted it a second coat. Let it dry overnight and then spray a light coat of clear coat to protect the finish from the weather.
That's it, easy and adorable don't you think? Check back to see the other painted pumpkin idea I created.
Til next time,
