glow in the dark pumpkins


I've been painting pumpkins during the fall for a very long time- so long that I kinda consider myself a pioneer of pumpkin painting! Back in 2010 my pretty painted pumpkins tutorial went viral and since then it has become a yearly tradition of mine to come up with a variety of unique pumpkin tutorials with the hope to inspire others to push the boundaries with paint and a pumpkin! I've got a few fun ideas coming your way in the weeks ahead and today I am kicking off the season with some glow in the dark pumpkins. 

Recently my friends at iLoveToCreate asked me if I would create another version of my pretty painted pumpkins but using their glow in the dark dimensional paint...it's no secret that I LOVE puff paint so I jumped at the challenge!

While you can use a plain pumpkin, I really enjoy starting with a colorful coat of paint. And since I am not into using typical fall or Halloween colors, I painted my pumpkins with a couple of pretty pastel colors.

I used a variety of the Tulip Dimensional Glow in the Dark Paint in a variety of colors. The great think about the dimensional paint is that is comes in a variety of really pretty colors which means your pumpkins will look really cool in both daylight and in the dark!


I used the paint and slowly added my decorative design around and around the pumpkin. I like to use lots of simple shapes that I embellish with tiny dots.


I painted a handful of pumpkins in different shapes and sizes.


In the daylight, the pumpkins are light and airy- a really pretty alternative to all those dark heavy fall colors and decor.

In the dark these pumpkins come alive! Use a black light or "charge" them in sunlight and they will glow bright!

Seeing all of those photos together really made me smile - all so different! I think you really must be Queen of pumpkin painting. So many beautiful and good ideas there - the houses, the leaves, the face, animals, patterns it goes on, wonderful stuff and so much inspiration there. The colours are all different and look so good. Your new idea is brilliant as you get a different day time and night time look which is great.
