I started by taping off the stem, so that it wouldn’t get paint on it. Then I used a two inch foam brush to paint the entire pumpkin hot pink. It took two coats of pink paint to cover the pumpkin fully. I let it dry completely before I moved on to the next step.

I used a fabric measuring tape to mark out my lines, making a mark every two inches as a guide to keep the lines evenly spaced apart. 

Add a bow and enjoy! It’s a great way to repurpose faux pumpkins. You can paint any pattern that you can come up with.
