Does your supermarket carry white pumpkins? Mine doesn’t, nor do any other markets around my neighbourhood, so I decide I’d
grow paint my own. Just think of the possibilities!
I wanted something with a bit of a Goth Glam look. Pretty enough for Thanksgiving and if you add a few cobwebs, spooky enough for Halloween.
First, I painted the pumpkins with white acrylic paint. Then, drew swirly designs with metallic paint pens and dimensional fabric paint in gold, silver, black and turquoise. The fleur de lis and other gems are stickers from the scrap booking section at Michaels. On the large pumpkin I scraped away some of the white paint to reveal the pumpkin skin underneath. (That was messy, so I only did it on the big one.) How easy was that! Looks pretty cool too!
