painted owl pumpkins

Fall is here and for the last few years I have a tradition of coming up with a variety of unique pumpkin tutorials for my readers! I like to use pumpkins in my fall decorating and since I am not a big fan of traditional carved pumpkins, I challenge myself to get as creative as possible with all kinds of supplies.

This year I am kicking things off with some really cute and creative painted owl pumpkins.

I started by drawing a simple outline of an owl.
I used a light colored, non permanent marker that I could paint over.
Using acrylic paint I filled my outline with paint.
The last step was to use a variety of permanent paint pens and markers to add all kinds of details.



For more pumpkin ideas here is a run down of all the pumpkins tutorials over the years. Its been so much fun creating with such simple materials and I can't wait for to share more ideas!
