Halloween-Themed Painted Pumpkins
Once you start creating Halloween-themed painted pumpkins, you will start noticing hoe addictive it can be! In fact, there are so many simple designs and ideas to try out that you might soon be heading to your local store more than once to get a few more pumpkins. The easiest starting point is to use Halloween stencils along with paint to bring different motifs and patterns without much work. These pumpkins can be used on the porch, on the stairway or even on the fireplace mantle to create a wonderful focal point that you just cannot miss.
Bright and Beautiful Ideas
One of the things that we have noticed over the last few years is how popular pumpkins with a painted message that just says ‘boo!’ are. But the colors you choose for these fun painted pumpkins can determine the style of the room that they adorn. Gold paint-dipped pumpkins with the letters can seem chic while those in black and white are perfect for a spookier theme. You can even alter the message on the pumpkins with a change in the stencil while custom designs, more intricate Halloween-themed paintings and fall-inspired patterns take a bit more work.
Paint with Quirky Additions
Using paint along with string lights can give you a decorative piece that is perfect for both Halloween and the festive season beyond. Pumpkins painted in a much brighter hue like teal along with a bit of creativity give you the brilliant pumpkin mummy. It is all about what you want in term of the overall decorative style of your home and how casual it needs to be. Sometimes a single painted pumpkin can hold your attention because of its artistic brilliance while on other occasions a collection of pumpkins with prints that range from witches and broomsticks to bats, webs and more can do the trick. Find your own style!
