Painted Witch Pumpkin

This is my Halloween pumpkin. This method allows the pumpkin to last a lot longer then a carved pumpkin and more detail work can be added since you are doing it all by hand. It helps to have a little bit of artistic skills but if not, who cares its your pumpkin!

I always start by finding an image online that I like. Then I freehand the image onto the pumpkin. I outline the free handed lines in a black or coordinating color. Finally, I begin to paint the inside parts of the image as desired. And of course, I top the painting off with a friendly Halloween greeting.
