Easy No-Carve Pumpkin Decorating
Painted leaf art
To put your painting in the spotlight, add painted designs to unusual squash or pumpkin cultivars, like this striking blue-green Jarrahdale pumpkin.
To paint any pumpkin, start with one that is clean and dry. Lightly sand the surface and apply paint sealer to prevent flaking. Create a design with stencils and acrylic paint, such as the leaf stencil and orange and white paints used here, then finish with a top-coat sealer.
