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!
