Stripes-and-Dots Pumpkins


Stripes and polka dots are simple way to celebrate the season. To add stripes, start with a white pumpkin. Using a 1-inch paintbrush and yellow paint (#53002), follow the lines from the stem to the pumpkin’s base. Create a spotted pumpkin by covering it with a coat of white paint (#47096) and adding orange polka dots (#47096, 2010-2). For painted pumpkins, start with a smooth, clean surface. Let paint dry between coats.
