8 Halloween Painted Pumpkin Ideas

Minnie Mouse Halloween Painted Pumpkin by Amy Locurto at LivingLocurto.com

I don’t carve pumpkins for Halloween anymore, I paint!

Because I have small children, painting pumpkins is the easiest and most fun option for them now. My daughter LOVED her Minnie Mouse Pumpkin last year at Halloween!

These are some wonderful pumpkins the older girls at my daughter’s school painted. Each Halloween they display their art work and I’m always super impressed with their creativity! Some are painted on plastic pumpkins, perfect for saving for next year.

    I love the painted pumpkins! If we had painted instead of carved two weekends ago, we would still have pumpkins (not a moldy mess) to show off at Halloween!
