Halloween is just around the corner, and the clock is ticking on creating some fun Halloween decorations !

And glow-in-the-dark pumpkins are a great alternative to pumpkins that we are used to carve.

If you are tired of emptying and carving pumpkins, with all the complexity this activity includes, try glow-in-the-dark pumpkins this year. You can also use them to make a good pumpkin pie. YUM !

You will need :

- Pumpkins. All pumpkins are suitable for this type of project. The idea is to pay as little as possible. Even artificial pumpkins are an option.

- (optional) Sandpaper.

- A clean, dry cloth

- White acrylic spray paint (or black paint, see the last picture).

- Glow-in-the-dark paint. The Tulip brand actually and it works very well.

How to do :

1) Sand the top of the pumpkin a bit and wipe with a clean dry cloth to remove all the dust.

2) Spray the white paint (or black, see the last photo) and let the paint dry completely before giving a 2nd or 3rd coat so that the paint is uniform all over the pumpkin.

We can see on this photo above, that they used artificial pumpkins to do this beautiful project.

Create designs :

3) The possibilities are endless ! Create designs on pumpkins with the colors of your choice ! But do not get bogged down in the details. Even the simplest designs are sure to look great when you light them up. Take for example the models of Hip2Save, below. They are trendy and rather simple to do, either for adults or children.

How to make them glow :

For a beautiful effect, the white paint is remarkable, but the black paint too ! Of course they will look wonderful out on the front porch at night but consider a black light to really let these pumpkins shine. Especially if you plan to keep them indoors.
