Perfect Painted Pumpkins

Think it takes too much time to a pumpkin? Why not try painting a pumpkin using our easy instructions.

To paint a pumpkin, try these tips:

  • Test latex or acrylic paints on a hidden spot on the pumpkin. Pumpkins have a waxy surface that repels some paints.
  • Use a latex primer if you want to change the color of the pumpkin.
  • After the primer has dried, brush or spray a coat of paint onto the entire pumpkin. For deeper color, apply a second coat.
  • Paint designs with latex or acrylic paint using a fine-tip artist's brush. Or try an acrylic paint pen for greater control.
  • Age the surface with an antiquing stain, if desired. 
  • Apply a coat of polyurethane to protect the painted design and to make the pumpkin shine.
