Pumpkin, Please: A Fun Fall Activity

Fall is here, and you know what that means… pumpkins! Add some color to your front porch by painting your pumpkins this year, skip the carving and let your inner Picasso shine!

What you’ll need: 

  • pumpkins 
  • stencils 
  • paintbrushes 
  • paint

Once you have everything rounded up, let the painting begin. 

We have a few easy tips and tricks to help you paint the perfect pumpkin. Start by using stencils as guides to help create easy, clean designs. Want to level up your painting game? Dip your brush in multiple paint colors for an ombré effect, and really lean in to using that stencil to help you pull off the perfect design. 

Show off your creativity by adding your own flare. Paint your favorite quote, shapes, or even your own name for your pumpkin to stand out from the rest!  

Whether it’s mom, dad, or a friend, always know it’s ok to ask for help when you need it!

Ta-da you’re done! Let your pumpkin completely dry before moving it. Then, show off your pumpkin on your front porch for your neighbors to see or wherever you can enjoy it! 

Let us know if you paint your pumpkins this year! Snap a photo and post to Instagram and tag us with @BuckleYouth so we can see your creations!
