So I let Samantha do her own little pumpkin decorating, but I wanted to get my craft on with pumpkin decorating too. We’ll of course do some carving, but painting pumpkins seems to be the thing lately and it looks super fun. We are big time glow-in-the-dark fans, so I figured I’d experiment with glow paint and regular neon acrylics. It was a success! All I did was combine half glow paint and half of a regular acrylic paint and it made the acrylic paint glow! The neon yellow and neon green look almost identical when it glows, but the other colors turned out pretty good. Such a fun and quick way to decorate pumpkins without a ton of mess like carving. Get yourself a black light, glow in the dark webbing, these glow pumpkins and you’ll have a very luminescent front porch =)

    These are so cute! Mine got destroyed by squirrels. They seriously ate the entire back half of it in one night. If it had had paint on it, maybe they would have kept away!
