Sticker Resist Chalkboard Pumpkins

Pin It

Here's a pumpkin decorating idea perfect for little people - plus working on letter recognition and a fun little painting activity!

Vin decided he wanted to paint his mini pumpkins - I had this tin of chalkboard paint hiding in a cupboard leftover from another project, so I thought it would be fun to make some black pumpkins!

We used sticker foam letters to make out messages - turns out tiny pumpkins aren't designed for long messages, so we had a  couple of 'boo' pumpkins! Once the paint was dried we peeled off the letters to reveal the words underneath. Simple and effective!

I was planning on turning one of our pumpkins into a traditional jack o' lantern face, but you guys know how I can't resist a googly eye... or twenty...


  1. Oh fun. Can you write on the pumpkins? It might be fun to just paint them and draw different faces each day.
