I am obsessed with Halloween decor, I don’t know why I love the holiday so much, but there is something enchantingly wicked about it. Every year I try to come up with some clever pumpkin decorating ideas and this year I was inspired by Target‘s spooky mini pumpkins.
While Target’s pumpkins are faux pumpkins, I decided to use real mini pumpkins that I bought at the grocery store. I think these pumpkins give the Halloween decor a more glam look. What do you guys think?

Different Paint Brush Sizes
*Since posting my glitter skull head tutorial, I had a lot of people ask me where I got the spell books featured in the background, I bought them at Michaels.*
1. Paint two pumpkins all black, two pumpkins white, and one pumpkin gold.
2. Apply a second coat of paint to all the pumpkins.
3. Once the pumpkins are completely dry, with a thin paint brush, paint small gold circles on the black and white pumpkins, and small black circles on the gold pumpkin.
4. For the two left over pumpkins, with a thin paint brush, go over the indented ridges with gold paint. With a thicker paint brush, paint inside every other ridge with gold paint.
Hope you all enjoyed this tutorial, happy painting!
