Pumpkin painting ideas

Get in the mood for Halloween by painting haunted houses and colourful pumpkins

What would Halloween be without pumpkins, cobwebs and witches? Certainly not as fun! It’s easy to make your own Halloween decorations – you can make all kinds of creation using Tetrapak cartons, for instance. With edding’s permanent sprays, you can quickly turn simple containers into spooky haunted houses painted with bats and cobwebs. A pumpkin can be made to look beautifully spooky using edding gloss paint markers. What’s more, ornamental pumpkins in various shapes and sizes also make great table decorations. By using edding gloss paint markers to paint windows and doors, you can transform knobbly pumpkins and haunted houses into an unusual table decoration for Halloween. Let’s get started!
