Some people are too creative! This golden, rich design really brightens up the home. A white base coat and golden sequins is all that is needed to pull off this design. It's easy and fancy, which for the time-concious designer is a win. The most difficult part may be finding enough sequins, but if you like shopping then that may be your type of challenge.

Mmmmmm, donuts. You may have to put up a notice alerting others that they are pumpkins and not real donuts if you do this painted design. Or, the sign may need to tell them they are donuts if the paint-job doesn't turn out that great. This is one of those designs everyone can appreciate.

Chalkboard paint is great for transforming boring walls into giant chalkboards. But what about pumpkins? It isn't exactly cheap, so you probably won't want to use a live pumpkin for this one. Instead, grab yourself a faux one so you can reuse it every year. It makes a great long-term display that can be customized with whatever written messages you want. Just use chalk to write a message and a cloth to wipe it away. It's a stylish and creative way to showcase messages to your visitors.

Golden Confetti

It may look that way, but it isn't real gold growing out the bottom of these pumpkins - it's actually gold tape! Carefully cut tape to be exact. It's a smart design really, that only takes a white base coat and careful application of gold tape strips.

You saw how great a painted pumpkin looks with painted flowers and floral designs on it, but you already know you can't paint it yourself. Well, there's an easier way. You can simply cut out a floral pattern and apply it to the outside of a pumpkin - kind of like it's an easter egg.

Wonderful Watercoler

Featured Image

Watercolor looks great on leaves as a fall decoration. It also looks greta on pumpkins. To make the opaque paint stick out you will want to coat your pumpkin with a white base coat. This allows the faintest watercolors to stick out. Watercolors are kid-friendly, less messy, and dry quickly.

Fairytale Magic

Colorful 90's

Featured Image

This is an urban 90's pumpkin, with it's exotic colors and odd shapes. Colorful vinyl was used to create this design, and each custom cut piece was adhered to the side like a sticker. It's certainly not your average pumpkin, but with a few of these in place you will have a colorful theme going that will not be missed.

Neon Drip

Featured Image

Dipping the bottoms of pumpkins in bright radiactive (kidding) paint and then turning them upside down to dry will create a fun wavy drip like pattern. This is something you'll want to do a few pumpkins for, as it looks better as a set with different colors. Use different shapes and sizes for a complete (and interesting) neon set.

Colorful Pour-over

You probably saw those cool looking neon-drip pumpkins, but have you seen these? They are a brilliant step up in that they use the same idea but more colors. The grooves on the outside of a pumpkin give paint a clear channel to drip down, which creates a unique looking effect.

Glittery Designs

Featured Image

Add some sparkle to your designs by glueing it on. You've probably done this in art class, but have you done it to a pumpkin? It's remarkably easy, with the hardest part being making the shapes - which you can certainly use stencils for. Applying glue to the shape and then dusting with glitter evenly is the next and most important step.

Sharpie Owls

Sharpie designs are a fun to look at, I mean, just look at this sharpie owl! It's a patterned arrangement of smaller designs that make the larger design of the owl much more interesting. You might have to be an artist to pull this one off - or just willing to try!

Polka Dot Stripe

These two-toned pumpkins may just be black and white, but they sure look fun and cute. Tape and two colors of paint are all that's needed to recreate this design. Black and white looks great, but so will other contrasting colors. Glow paint would look great too.

Why? ....WHY NOT! That's what you'll say to people when they ask why you painted a pumpkin to look like a watermellon. Making fruits out of vegetables is something many veggie-haters can enjoy doing.
