Hi friends! Fall time is here, and Halloween is right around the corner, so that means it’s time for PUMPKINS! I break them out every year about this time and tend to hear a sigh from my husband. Yes, it may get a little pumpkin crazy ’round our house. But how can you not love these gorgeous gourds?? So when Michaels told me about the Great Pumpkin Challenge I was intrigued! And they sent me a few pumpkins to test out some new tricks…and I came up with these FUN Neon Paint Dipped Pumpkins!

Are you a child of the 80s? If so, you may be reveling in the bright neon revival! I think neons are so much fun, especially when it comes to party decor. So pumpkins may be a little out there, but if you’re into modern design with a POP – these would be perfect! And they were so much fun to create!

What you’ll need:

  • Pumpkins
  • White spray paint
  • Americana NEONS paint
  • Paint brush

And the steps:

  1. I started off with an orange, black and ivory pumpkin that I spray painted white (several light coats until fully covered).
  2. Once dry I “dipped” the bottom of the pumpkin in Americana NEONS paint, spread around a thick layer with a paint brush and held upside down until the bottom was completely covered and paint started to run up the sides.
  3. Once I was happy with how far the paint ran “up” the pumpkin, I turned it upright and placed on a glass to dry.

Aren’t they FUN! I’m obsessed. Where has neon been all these years? And I have to tell you, these Americana NEONS (that you can also find at Michaels) are fabulous! So true to color and bright! I can see more neon projects in our future. You have been warned! Ok, back to pumpkins…
