Use black fabric paint or marker to decorate pumpkins with short Bible verses. This is a perfect opportunity to bring faith into your decoration and remind your child or grandchild to thank God for the fall harvest. It’s simple and meaningful, and it can bring significance to the activity.
Glow-in-the-dark fabric paints
Who doesn’t love things that glow in the dark? This decoration fits perfectly with the Halloween theme and gives you an opportunity to create your own patterns. You can even make cross decorations that will brighten up your porch even after the sun sets.
Cover the pumpkin with patterned duct tape. Your child can pick out any pattern of duct tape he or she wants, and you can cover the entire pumpkin with one or two patterns. It’s easy, and all you need is scissors and your chosen duct tape. You’ll be done in no time, but you’ll be proud of the outcome.
Create patterns with nails
This is an easy way to decorate, although it does require more supervision. You can paint the pumpkin first in a color of your choosing, and then use a hammer and nails to create designs. It might be fitting to make a cross or a rosary or spell out a name.
Colorful, fun, and easy, this pumpkin decoration is completely safe. All you need is a blow-dryer and crayons to create this unique pattern. You can even add stickers of crosses that, when removed, you can outline with melted crayon.
