PUMPKIN CRAFT IDEAS: GLOW IN THE DARK PAINT

Plaid Crafts has an entire collection of gorgeous bright Folk Art Glow-in-the-Dark Acrylic Paints in all of our favorite neon Halloween colors. Because I wanted to keep these pumpkins up throughout the Fall season I used the Neutral Glow on pumpkins that were already the color I wanted (the teal and the orange), then I painted a white pumpkin to match the rest of my decor. It is the ultimate in customization!

TUTORIAL: HOW TO MAKE GLOW IN THE DARK PUMPKINS

To paint pre-colored pumpkins simply add a coat of Plaid Crafts Folk Art Glow-in-the-dark Acrylic Paint in Neutral Glow to pumpkin and let dry. You will need to apply several coats and let dry in between. The more coats you apply the greater the glow!

Want to take it to the next level? Add a pattern or stencil to your pumpkin for a cool “negative” effect

  1. I used Cricut removable vinyl (pattern doesn’t matter since you are going to peel it off) to cut my shape, but you could use thin paper or a stencil.

Apply to pumpkin – use scraper to make sure pattern is adhered well to the surface.
