Pumpkin Of The Day

I did this last year and it was super easy, plus I got tons of compliments. All you do is use a paper doily as a stencil. Pic via BHG.

  1. oh this is a great idea! but i imagine it has to be well taped so the paint doesn't bleed...and it must be hard to tape a pumpkin with all the grooves in the pumpkin.

  2. It actually worked fairly well..I used a doily that was the size of the circumference of the pumpkin, then just cut out a hole in the middle of the doily, and used spray adhesive to stick it down over the top of the pumpkin. The trick was to use the least amount of paint as possible on the doily so that it wouldn't bleed through. And it would help to find as smooth a pumpkin as possible!
