painted whimsical floral pumpkin

This beautiful whimsical floral pumpkin makes a great addition to your fall décor.
Step 1

Use a pencil to lightly draw an oval for flowers onto the surface of your pumpkin; then overlap more ovals for interest and depth. Next, sketch leaves, branches and/or berries.

Step 2
To paint the flowers, start with a small black oval in the center of a larger oval. Paint a different color oval around the first one. Finally, paint a third color oval around the second to fill the rest of the flower.
TIP: You will need several coats of paint to get good coverage. Let each coat dry in between.
Step 3

Paint the leaves, branches and/or berries. Let dry.

Step 4

Finally, use a black paint marker to draw around all your elements.
