I love adding personal touches to our holiday decor and this Halloween I’ve incorporated that by creating our own DIY Chalkboard Painted Pumpkin. Try adding a spooky and clever message or simply your last name. Even get the kids in on the fun by having them draw their own spooky creation or scary message!
This craft works best for medium to large sized pumpkins. Pick your choice of color, we used an orange pumpkin and I just loved how it turned out!
Here is what you’ll need:
Basic Chalk Board Paint
Medium to Large Size Pumpkin
Start by finding the flattest area of the pumpkin. Then make an outline of the shape lightly with pencil if needed. Fill the space neatly with the chalkboard paint. Add one to two coats. Let dry overnight.
The next day I gave the pumpkin to Brinkley to decorate the way she wanted. She had a blast and loved seeing her get into the halloween spirit writing BOO!
