Overview

Halloween doesn't have to be all ghosts and ghouls. Turn fright night into a kid-friendly celebration with these cute and colourful pumpkins.

Steps

1Prep your space

Lay out a drop sheet or newspapers, as the pumpkins can roll and make a mess!

2Apply base coat

Paint pumpkins with a base coat of white. We also left some unpainted for a natural look.

3Decorate

Play around with different combinations of colour, painting part or all of each pumpkin over the white base.

4Paint the letters

Paint the letters in your chosen colours, giving them two coats for the best finish.

5Apply the letters

Once the paint has dried, apply lettering using all-purpose glue.

6Time to trick or treat

There you have it, now all you need to do is pop into your local Bunnings to pick up your paint supplies for these spooky pumpkins.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
