Neon is back in style, so why not be on trend with a neon pumpkin? First, you will want to paint your pumpkin white. If you want a streak look like the pumpkin above, spray slightly watered down non-toxic neon paint onto the pumpkin. If you want it to be brighter and more vibrantly hued, allow the white paint to dry. Then spray the neon paint onto the pumpkin. You can also use regular paint and a wet cotton ball to blend the colors.
Melaine from My Sweet Savannah made these super cute chevron pumpkins by using painters tape. She cut up strips of tape and placed them on the pumpkin to create the chevron pattern. Then she painted the entire pumpkin, covering the tape. After the paint dried, she pulled off the tape. Follow her step by step instructions here.
