Painted paper mache pumpkins are a fast and easy craft project anyone can do! They would be a great project for a fall craft party, or even a kids party. The paper mache pumpkins are inexpensive and it would be so fun to see how how everyone decorated them to make them their own!
I purchased mine at Michael’s Craft Store.
Using my go to FolkArt Chalk Paint in Adirondack White I painted everywhere except the stem. I used my heat tool to speed up the drying process. Then I took Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Walnut Stain, mixed it with a bit of the Adirondack White and painted the stem. I used a make-up sponge, and the same paint color as the stem and I added shading on the body of the pumpkin. If I felt like I had to much shading or I just didn’t like where it was going I took my paint brush lightly dipped it into the Adirondack White rubbed some off onto a paper towel and dabbed over the shaded area until I was happy with the results.
I just love how these painted paper mache pumpkins turned out, and they’re a decor item that I can leave out through Thanksgiving.
