Well I must admit I have a new obsession. Ever since I discovered that chalkboard paint came in spray-form I seem to be transforming all sorts of objects into writable surfaces such as these horse place settings I did for Polka Dot Bride earlier this month. So for Halloween I figured, what the hey, let’s make chalkboard pumpkins.
The beauty of these pumpkins is that you can change them up whenever you want to. Perhaps one child can have a design for the week and then it’s the next one’s go. So what are you waiting for? Let your creative side loose and start decorating pumpkins!
What you need:
1. Cover the pumpkin stem with masking tape.
2. Place the pumpkin on paper in a well-ventilated area, preferably outdoors.
3. Shake spray paint well and lightly spray the entire pumpkin. Set aside for 20 minutes or until dry. Spray again with a second coat. Leave for 20 minutes to dry. Check if you need another coat at this stage. Once the pumpkin looks evenly covered then you can leave it overnight to dry.
4. Remove the masking tape from the stem. Use the chalk to decorate your pumpkin.
