First, use a makeup sponge and the color Anchor to paint the face accents for the pumpkin. When using a makeup sponge to paint, pounce the paint onto the surface in an even layer using up and down motions.
Next, use the color Florida Orange to paint the entire surface of the pumpkin’s face.
I used a paint brush from Dixie Belle for this portion of the project.
Next, use the color Anchor again to paint the witch’s hat.
I used a smaller Dixie Belle Paint Brush for this step.
Now it’s time to add some dimension to the witch’s hat!
For this part of the project, I used a stencil from Belles & Whistles. The exact stencil that I used in no longer available, but the Morocco Stencil from the same line would be a great substitute.
Place the stencil over the top of the dry hat.
Use the same makeup sponge technique to pounce the color Amethyst over the surface of the stencil.
Be sure to hold your stencil in place and apply thin, even coats of paint.
Once you’ve achieved the finish you like, you can remove the stencil by lifting it away from the surface.
This is what your stenciled hat will look like. See how that Amethyst color pops on the black background.
Once dry, use a palm sander to rough up the surface.
This will give the hat a more rustic look.
Now it’s time to put on the finishing touches!
To finalize the pumpkin, use super glue to attach the face cutouts and hat.
Once everything is in place, add a bow and twine for hanging!
This guy is spooky and sweet!
