Instructions:

  1. Decide what design to paint on the pumpkin, using star, zigzag, diamond, stripes or dotted designs.
  2. Paint the background areas and let dry. To make dots, dip the eraser of a pencil or the handle of a paintbrush into paint and dot onto the surface. Make double dots by painting smaller dots over larger ones, letting dry between coats. Use a fine liner brush to make stripes and outlines. Let the paint dry.
