Supplies Needed:

  • Foam paint brush
  • Craft pick
  • Glitter glue

When it comes to fall décor, sometimes I like to step outside of the usual color box! For this pumpkin  craft I was inspired by so many creatives that I see experimenting with watercolor-style splashing and color. Why not use this technique for playfully decorating craft pumpkins? I thought of using vinyl as masks to create unique shapes and designs within the painted pumpkin that would be both fun and something I’ve never seen! Creating this was a really fun and quick afternoon project. Let your paint layers dry between steps and enjoy the process.

Tip: If your acrylic paint gets too thick and doesn’t want to peel off/away from the vinyl sticker, use a craft knife to gently cut it free where it is stuck.

Tip: Don’t want to hand arrange your shapes on the cut mat? Let the ScanNCut DX handle that for you! Press the button with the four shapes on it, and choose from lining them up or having them scattered all around as they best fit. Quick, easy, and saves material too!
