Looking for a Halloween or fall decoration that’s less messy than scooping piles of innards? If the palette of fall’s oranges and browns just isn’t your style. Make some super hip ombre pumpkins, that’s easier than you think! You just need 2 paint colors, 2 brushes, and a pumpkin or gourd of your choice. So you will want to pick two colors that work together. You could try a sea punk blue to purple, a refined silver to white, or peacock blue to white. Surprise everyone with bold color combos and enjoy colors this fall!
To make your ombre pumpkins even more interesting, you may also use some stickers. This tutorial will tell you how to pull off ombre and vinyl stickers at the same time. The result is a bold pumpkin with festive text, perfect for Halloween or any other celebration depending on the text you prefer. The author used a Silhouette to cut out the black adhesive vinyl, but you may go for ready stickers as well. Happy crafting!
These ombre glittered mini pumpkins are worth crafting for sure! I love the sparkle they can bring to usual Halloween decorations. These little guys are totally inexpensive, though they don’t look cheap. Before you get started, clean your mini pumpkins with soapy water. This will help keep them from rotting. When you pick your mini pumpkins, keep in mind you’ll only see the stems and not the bruises on the pumpkins so go for awesome stems instead of perfect pumpkins. Watch the video tutorial and continue crating!
Halloween isn’t just about ghosts and goblins, bring a little bit of whimsy with your pumpkins this year: go for colorful ombre pumpkins. Read the tutorial to make these cool ombre pumpkins and add more of an ombre effect with glitter. If you are doing a gradation of dark to light you want to spray the darker spray paint first followed by the lighter spray paint on top then follow with the darker glitter first, followed by the lighter glitter.
