Candy Corn Pumpkin

Use Simply Spray® Project Paint and a simple masking technique to create a candy corn themed pumpkin this fall!

Materials

  • Pumpkin (real or fake)
  • Painter's or Masking Tape
  • Cardboard or drop cloth to protect your surface
  • Wet cloth or paper towel

Instructions

Step 1. Gather your materials.


Step 2. 

Use cloth to wipe dust and dirt off the pumpkin and lay on a protected surface.


Step 3. 

Wrap painter’s or masking tape around the pumpkin’s stem.


Step 4. 

Measure pumpkin into three horizontal parts: the top section should be smallest and the bottom section should be largest.  Use painter’s tape to cover the middle section.


Step 5. 

Use white Simply Spray® Project Paint, to cover the top section of the pumpkin. Set aside to dry for 30 minutes.


Step 6.

Using yellow Simply Spray® Project Paint, to cover the bottom section of the pumpkin. Set aside to dry for 30 minutes.


Step 7.

Remove the painter’s tape from the mid-section of the pumpkin to reveal the white, orange, yellow candy corn pattern on your pumpkin!

Tip:

As our pumpkin was already orange, we did not need to paint this section. You  can also use fall gourds and other fall colors of project paint for unique designs!
