Introduction: American Horror Story Pumpkin Painting

In this Instructable we are going to be showing you how to paint a pumpkin featuring all 7 seasons of American Horror Story.

Step 1: Gather Materials

-Red, black, yellow and white acrylic paint

- Paintbrushes

- Pen or pencil

- Fine black Sharpie

- Toothpicks

Step 2: Divide Your Pumpkin Into 4 Sections.

Take a sharpie or ink pen and divide your pumpkin into 4 equal sections.

Step 3: Paint Your Background.

Take your choice of paint colors and paint a base layer for the background. For ours, we alternated black and white except for season 1 and 4.

Step 4: Outline Each Picture Lightly.

This step is optional. If you feel that outlines are unnecessary, skip to step 4.

We chose a drawing that was simple, yet clearly represented each season:

1(Murder House)- Leather Man

2(Asylum)- Black bleeding eyes

3(Coven)- Snake

4(Freak Show)- Tent stripes

5(Hotel)- Key

6(Roanoke)-?6 symbol

7(Cult)- Honeycomb/Beehive

Step 5: Murder House

For this step, we did a red background and then painted the famous black leather man from season 1.

Step 6: Asylum

After your white background has dried, take a small paintbrush and fill in the eyes. Now take a smaller brush if you have it and make small "tear" like strokes downward until you get the look you desire.

Step 7: Coven

Start by outlining your snake in white paint, and then fill the entire body. After the white paint has completely dried, take a fine tip sharpie or pen and draw a few scales here-and-there to add a little extra detail, as well as drawing the mouth and eye.

Step 8: Freak Show

Take a small paintbrush and paint red and white stripes to resemble the circus tent. After this dries, take another brush and paint the title. You can also use a sharpie for this if you don't seem to find a paintbrush small enough. It may help to look up a photo of this to get the font correct.

Step 9: Hotel

Start by painting your lips with red paint and a small brush. Now take a clean brush and paint the teeth white, as well as outlining them with black paint. Now take yellow paint and another clean brush and paint the key.

Step 10: Roanoke

For this step we found a toothpick to work best in place of a paintbrush. Take your red paint and paint the "?6" Symbol. This one might be handy to find a reference picture for!

Step 11: Cult

For this one, we took white paint and painted a hexagon for a base. After this dried, we painted over it lightly in yellow. Now take a pen or sharpie and fill it in with smaller hexagons to resemble a honeycomb.

Step 12: Enjoy Your Artwork.

These pumpkins are great for display, and look great anywhere in your home!
