instructions

 

  1. Paint your faux pumpkin with White and let dry.
  2. In big bold letters, paint the word “EEK!” with Black on the center of your pumpkin and let dry. Tip: Use a pencil to draw the letters first so that you can adjust and erase the letters before you paint them on.
  3. In the center of your Black letters, paint a White so that the Black part looks like a border around the letters.
  4. Use Jack-o-Lantern to paint square brush strokes all over your pumpkin and let dry.
