Forget carving and scooping, forget taping and painting, and forget rotting pumpkins. All you need to make these stylish chevron pumpkins are some paint pens, a Sharpie, some fake pumpkins, and a steady hand…
Materials: tall orange pumpkin, small white pumpkin, gold paint pens, a black Sharpie marker, and a pencil for stenciling.
1. For the white pumpkin, I used a pencil to trace some chevrons and then the black Sharpie to fill them in. It helped to make a mark where each chevron would peak, to make sure they were spaced evenly apart.
2. For the orange pumpkin, I used a pencil again to mark the peaks of each chevron, spacing them evenly. I then traced lines connecting each peak with the pencil. I finished by filling in the lines with a gold paint pen.
3. Let dry completely before handling. Spray with an acrylic sealer if you plan to sit these outside at all!
That’s it! Now you don’t have to worry about rotting pumpkins AND you can store these away for next year.
