Do It Yourself College Team Themed Chevron Painted Pumpkin
Be creative! Choose between Game Day Colors, Sorority colors or seasonal colors.
Things you will need to successfully complete this quick and easy craft project.
- Pumpkin (any size)
- Acrylic Craft Paint
- Ribbon of Choice
- Foam Sponge Brush
- Regular Paint Brushes
- Masking Tape
- Hair Dryer
- Water to Clean Brushes
Step 1 - Clean debris off of pumpkin
Step 2 - Tape pumpkin in the pattern of your choice. I chose a black and white chevron print because it is very trendy this year and is the epitome of college game day. If you choose the chevron print you will only need to tape off the first line to get started to make sure your pattern is even. The width of the foam brush is a perfect measurment for your chevron stripes pattern. You can also do polka dots, stripes,chevron or mix and match.
Step 3 - Use the hair dryer for each line for quick drying. This way you don't need to worry about the colors bleeding onto one another and you can touch up where needed.
Step 4 - After the paint on the pumpkin is completely dry, you can now paint your school or sorority logo on the pumpkin. A quick and easy way to draw the logo if you aren't so artistic is to print the logo of your choice, cut it out and use it as a stencil.
Step 5 - Add a bow or ribbon of choice.
