Chalkboard Pumpkins!Crafting, Featured, General, Kid Fun! — By Shannon Schmid on August 30, 2013 at 7:07 am
I LOVE the fall! And while I’m not rushing it, I just had to share another fall project with you, because I think its a great one to do a little early! Chalkboard Pumpkins!
Chalkboard pumpkins are great, not only because you can decorate them in anyway you like, matching them to your style and decor – but also because kids have so much fun drawing and erasing funny Halloween faces on them all season long!
What you Need:
- A pumpkin! You can use a real one, or a foam craft pumpkin like we did.
- Chalkboard paint. You can choose between chalkboard spray paint, or a paint pot. I prefer the paint pot because its easier to control where they paint goes.
- Chalk! To Decorate your pumpkin!
- Time! Wait until the paint is completely dry before decorating.
As you may already know if you have been a reader for a while, I have always enjoyed chalkboard projects. But I think this one is particularly fun! You can change this one of a kind Jack-o-lantern’s design every day if you want to!
I suggest handing it over to your kids along with a damp cloth to wipe it clean when they want to start over. It can be hours of fun, and its cheap and easy. Two hallmarks of a great project in my mind!
Happy early …Halloween Season!
