I’ve never been a big fan of Halloween Decor and because of that have always taken a fairly minimal approach with this particular holiday. I’m really neutral when it comes to Home Decor so I think that is why I’ve never gone too crazy over Halloween Decorations.
This year I wanted to surprise my family and do a little something and found an idea for Minimalist Halloween Decor with painted pumpkins. I found lots of insiration on my Pinterest feed. I was so inspired so decided to try a little Pumpkin Painting DIY for myself. I am over the moon thrilled with the results! I finally found a way to make Halloween match MY style!
You can purchase paint from a hardware store or even a dollar store for that matter. I wanted custom paint colours so went with these little paint mini’s from Home Depot. You can also use craft paint. Click here. You’ll also need some paint brushes. I used foam brushes and it worked well!
I laid out my supplies with my Gathre mat on my kitchen counter for an easy paint surface. I added a layer of newspaper on top for extra protection.
Paint and Decorate
First step is to paint your pumpkins. Let them sit to dry for a few hours. I found that the longer they dry, the better your decorating/drawing process will go. I painted early afternoon and then decorated after bedtime. Next year I’m making this a fun girlfriends craft night. Its waaaay too much fun to do alone!
Once my pumpkins were dry, I used Sharpie Pens to decorate. Have fun with it! I sure did!
For a an extra touch to my Minimalist Halloween Decor, I bought this package of Bat decals and I really love the extra touch and whimsy they give!
Happy Crafting and Decorating My Lovelies!
Until Next Time,
