Painted House Number Pumpkins

Can you tell I'm ready to start decorating for Halloween!  I promise I will post some normal everyday things soon, but I just get so excited to share what I'm up to for the Halloween holiday.

I was in Michael's the other day and ran across these cute small black pumpkins.  I don't remember them carrying them last year, but I just think they are adorable.  I had some metallic silver paint from DecoArt that I thought would look really good on the black and stand out, so I grabbed three of these cuties and decided to paint our house number on them.  Here is what I did!

Supplies Needed:

  • Pumpkins of your choosing
  • Small Paint Brush
  • Vinyl Numbers (I used my cricut Songbird font)

Here the pumpkins before.

I cut out my vinyl numbers on my cricut and placed them on my pumpkins.  I cut them 5".

I then took a ball point pen and applied a little pressure to the pumpkin and traced my number 4.

See it when I lift off the vinyl.

I then painted them in.  It's that simple.

How cute are these!  
They are going to look so good when I get my front porch completely decorated.

Hope this inspires you to paint some pumpkins!

Thanks for stopping by.

  6. These are super cute, but do they weigh enough? I saw these at Michael's last year and bought a ton of them to let my kids decorate and they were super lightweight. Can you weigh them down? Love the idea. They are soooo cute,just wanna be sure I'm not chasing my pumpkins down the driveway =)
