Painting with Pumpkins with Leaves + Mod Podge

Supplies Needed:


Method for painting your own pumpkin with Leaves

  • Begin by carving your pumpkin, if you would like too. You can also leave your pumpkin uncarved.
  • Next, paint your pumpkin with acrylic paint. You can do a solid color, or multiple colors and allow to dry completely.
  • Once dry, take your Mod Podge and apply a thin layer on the pumpkin, and press your leaves on top.
  • Apply a second layer of mod podge over your leaves. Repete this process until you have the desired amount of leaves on your pumpkin.
  • Allow to dry completely and store outside, to help keep your pumpkin from rotting too early.
  • Enjoy your painted pumpkin during the halloween season!

This pumpkin painting with mod podge and leaves art project was so much fun, and the kids and I had a blast! I was the one who wanted to try the leaves on my pumpkin, and my son simply painted his pumpkin wild colors, and my daughter carved hers all by her self.
