Beautiful typography pumpkins without any carving!  Use chalk, spray paint and your favorite typefaces.

Step 1:

What you'll need:
  • Chalkboard and gold spray paint
  • Painter's masking tape
  • Newspaper or cardboard
  • Pumpkins
  • Chalk
  • Pencil
  • Black Sharpie
  • Typefaces! We used Lust Script by Neil Summerour & Blakely by Mark Simonson.


<p>The coolest idea ever, I'm so making these this weekend. </p>
<p>Awesome! For those of you (me) who can't afford to buy a typeface, there's always dafont.com (no affiliation).</p>
nice :D
Simple and cool idea :D
Sure beats the mess and hassle of carving
Can you see the text, when it is dark and with candlelights in it?
great question - the candle would not go into the pumpkin as there is no carving. visibility of the text would depend on the positioning of the candle, relative to the pumpkin. there is glow in the dark chalk available, which could be a great way to highlight the text!
Okay! Thanks :)
Love the idea!
i loved ur idea :D
Great idea
Looks great!
