Do you want a toothy grin or spooky scowl? Happy or sad? A wink or slant? What face will your Halloween Jack-O-Lantern wear this year? Wouldn’t it be awesome if your jack-o-lantern could change to fit your mood? Why not do a little something different this year and make a chalkboard painted pumpkin! It’s really easy to do and your kids can help too!
This is what you will need:
- A Pumpkin
- Chalkboard Paint
- Paint Brush
Step 1: Clean your pumpkin using a wet towel.
Step 2: Use your paint brush to apply the chalkboard paint all over the pumpkin.
Step 3: Set the pumpkin aside to dry for approximately 6-8 hours.
Step 4: Apply the second coat of paint. Let the paint completely dry for at least 24 hours.
Step 5: Rub chalk all over the pumpkin and then use a dry cloth to wipe the chalk off.
You now have your very own “Chalkboard” Pumpkin!
Step 6: Get out your chalk and start creating your “Jack-O-Lantern”. Even the young ones can help-out! The possibilities are endless. Have fun!
Hope you have more Treats than Tricks. Happy Haunting!
