Measure the centre point of the pumpkin. Cut two pieces of tape 7.6 cm (3") long. Overlap the ends to create a “V”.
Place the tape in the centre of the pumpkin to start your pattern. Continue around the pumpkin, making a chevron pattern using 7.6 cm (3") pieces of tape.
At each point, measure up or down 2.5 cm (1"). Tape the remaining rows, following the pattern.
Use flat brush to paint pumpkin Wicker White. Apply several coats, drying between coats. Paint a few coats, allowing the paint to dry between coats. Let dry completely.
Carefully remove tape to reveal painted pattern.
