I LOVE finding new ways to decorate pumpkins, though I also love carving them. Last year I carved my first one and I did Cinderella's castle. This year I did Ray and Evangeline from The Princess and The Frog.
These chalkboard pumpkins are a fun, kid friendly alternative to carving. The best thing is you can change their face or design as often as you want!
a real pumpkin of whatever size you like
flat black spray paint
chalkboard spray paint
chalk...we only had the jumbo size but the thinner ones work better
1. Wipe off any excess dirt and grime from your pumpkin.
2. Spray it all over, including the stem, with the flat black paint.
3. Let this dry completely then spray a layer of chalkboard paint all over.
4. Once its dry (maybe give a few hours for this) color away!
