Chalkboard Painted Witch Silhouette Pumpkin

I love painting my pumpkins for Halloween holiday. I’m a painter and crafter at heart and I love for the Halloween decorations to last for a long time.

I wanted to try some new paints from the Martha Stewart craft line, and I thought a witch silhouette pumpkin would be perfect excuse.

The three paints I used are:

First I painted a primer paint on.


Next, a layer or two of glow-in-the-dark green paint.


After this layer was dry, I created a template for a witch silhouette, cut it out, and traced onto the front of my pumpkin.

Then I filled in the witch silhouette with the chalkboard paint.


You can grab your own copy of the witch silhouette here.

Now the fun part – decorating your witch! I love these wet chalk markers, and I had so much fun coloring in her face and putting details in the hair and hat. The best part is, you can wipe it off and create a new face every day if you like!

Happy Pumpkin Crafting!
