Pumpkin Painting Party Ideas and Free Printable Invitation by LivingLocurto.com

 

I hosted a fun Halloween Pumpkin Painting Party for the neighborhood kids! We have several new neighbors, so this was a fun way for everyone to meet and greet.

I did some test pumpkin painting before my guests arrived. Because my 2 year old is obsessed with Minnie Mouse right now… look what I made her!!

I used wooden skewers to stick the small ear pumpkins into Minnie’s head. The rest, I painted by hand, then added a pink bow!

Time for the party to begin!

I also found some foil cupcake pans at the grocery store, then filled each cupcake area with paint and a brush. No mixing the paint this way!

I also covered the tables with press and seal cling wrap. It just sticks right to the table and no mess! Target has some cute Halloween press and seal.

Contests are always fun at parties. The kids all loved guessing how many pumpkins were in the jar. They each had to write down a number several times! Can you guess how many? (41 is the magic number!)

My son guessed 88. He cried when he didn’t get the prize.

      @Louise,
      After I had pumpkins in different sizes sitting around the

      house in arrangements for Halloween, I would spray paint

      them gold and silver for Thanksgiving and Christmas

      decorations. Arranged by the fireplace (gas) with lots of

      other holiday decorations, floral, etc, it really looked classy.

  3. I love this SO much. what a fun idea. I cant believe this almosts makes me long for fall when summer JUST started. Cant wait to feature this come october…I may do it sooner because I dont think ill be able to wait haha. Great job.

  19. Amy, what creativity! Looks like everyone had a blast! Used to do crafts “in the hood” when the kids were little. Now they’ve all grown to teens who just aren’t into sitting on the lawn and crafting anymore. It was so much fun while it lasted, though. Family Fun magazine was my gospel for kid crafts back then.

    Love the “Minnie Mouse” pumpkin!!!

  20. Oh I love all the creativity!

    Thank you for entering my giveaway~good luck!

  21. Okay, everyone please move to my neighborhood! We would have so much fun!

    These are acrylic paints. Go here for more fun ideas:
