Glow in the Dark Puffy Paint Polka-dot Pumpkin

Another week, another pumpkin decorating idea for you. = )

If you missed the last two weeks, check out the zentangle pumpkin or the decoupaged Fall leaves pumpkin.

Today is about polka-dots, not just plain old polka-dots, puffy ones and glow-in-the dark ones!

I’ve used these puffy paints on many projects, including decorating shirts, but never on a pumpkin before.

I used Glow in the Dark paints and as well as Tulip Beads in a Bottle fabric paints.

I wanted to make a surprise glow in the dark ‘BOO” in the middle of my pumpkin, so first I drew the letters lightly on the front of my pumpkin with a pencil.

Then outlined each letter with dots.

I filled the rest of the pumpkin in with polka-dots until it was completely covered. Careful, and let dry completely before trying to move or touch.

I think the design turned out really cool, and I love how tactile it feels once it dried.

You can’t really see the BOO design unless you are looking for it, but you can for sure see it at night when it glows in the dark!
