glowing pumpkin art

On Monday I shared with you my Pumpkin table décor idea and showed you a few more pumpkins that I saved for the kids to do a craft.
I grabbed some glow in the dark acrylic paint from Michaels as well as used some Tulip Glow in the Dark puff paint for my vision.  We spray painted the pumpkins with a black texture paint with specs of silver in it to add the spooky effects.

I added the glow paint on paper plates on both sides of the pumpkins, helped Ryan roll up his sleeves and get busy. The girls were a bit more work so that’s why you don’t see them pictured with their pumpkins.

Now I must tell you that I am not into scary things so this is probably as far as I might go for the spooky effects around our house.  Each of the kiddos got to dip their hands in glow paint and simply place their hands around the pumpkin.  We dipped our hands to get enough so that the prints would have a drip look…Scary?  I would say so!

These spooky pumpkins welcome our guests as they come up to our door.
I love using the kids hands and feet for added décor for the holidays.  If you are new to my blog, you will notice that is a huge thing for me.  I have more up my sleeve to share for this Halloween season! What are you creating?

I love the idea of having them use their hands for the paint - it makes the pumpkins that much more special :D
