Make Halloween jack-o’-lanterns yourself
Jack-o’-lanterns are interesting, cute and suitable for fall decorations, especially for Halloween. You can let your imagination run wild and create different designs. Here are some ideas:
You can paint the pumpkins in advance. Before you apply a white primer on them, clean them with a kitchen sponge and soap and dry them thoroughly. This will help the acrylic paint adhere better. Squeeze some paint onto the palette, then apply white paint to the top half of each pumpkin with the wide, dry brush. Let the paint dry and then paint the bottom half. Once the entire pumpkin is dry, apply another coat of white paint. Then let the whole thing dry completely!
Copy, draw, or sketch in advance any designs or lettering that you don’t want to freehand onto the pumpkin. Then roughly cut out your stencil, turn it over, and shade the back of the design by applying a really thick layer of pencil. Place the stencil on the pumpkin and secure it with small strips of tape if necessary to keep it in place. Now draw your design on the pumpkin. Remove the stencil. Then use a craft knife to cut out the shapes you want! Inside each pumpkin, attach a simple platform with skewers for a tea light.
