Supplies needed for this project:
- A white pumpkin, preferable one that is not real from a craft store. I got mine at Michaels.
- Black, orange and white acrylic paint.
- Paint brush and dobbers for stencils, Q-tips for clean up
- Black and white paint pens.
- My Rosie 'O stencils or your favorite StencilGirl stencils.
- Painters tape
- Fun decorator Ribbon
- High gloss sealer (optional)
This is a fun way to use some stencils for the holidays. You can do this too!
1. First I taped off some of the sections of the pumpkin. I tried to follow the natural line but that didn't always work. Try to make them similar in size and not too small or your design might not show up well.
3. I kept going around the pumpkin using different areas of the stencils to create the look I wanted. As you start to work on sections next to each other you will have to move the tape to get all of the section painted but you will have a nice line to follow. Make sure you don't stencil over the line.

7. Now for the finishing touches and we are all done. Take a good look at your pumpkin, are there areas where it feels empty? Use your paint pens and add other stencil designs or add something free hand. Circles, dots and stripes are easy to add with the pens.
If you would like them to look like glass you can spray them with a high gloss spray or leave them as they are. I added a bow which was easily attached with a straight pen or a glue gun.
