  • I first used black spray paint to paint the pumpkins all black (Rustoleum holds up the best) – let dry
  • Then, I went over the black paint with glitter blast! They are so shiny and beautiful. You could just stop there! But, if you want to make the “BOO” display, read on…

  • Don’t forget to use glow in the dark paint! It comes in a squeeze bottle, which makes it easy to write with. Find it in the fabric paint aisle at Michael’s craft store, or a similar craft store.
  • The B is just a fancy “B” give it a little spiral inside the bottom of his belly, and some fancy flares to his stick! And, there you have it! A fancy “B”!

  • The “O”s are just and Oval starting on the top right going clockwise and back up, then heading inside the top with a spiral for the top half of the Oval!
  • Hang a spider from the end point of the spiral by using a contrasting color, like the green I used, and pulling it down under the spiral
  • Add a spider to the green line by making a “yellow circle” -or a kids thumb print! and give it 8 little legs!
  • The “green” web is in the bottom left of the oval. I made 3 green lines, Starting with a wide sideways “V” and a line in the middle of the “V”, then I connected the “V” lines to the Orange Oval with green paint going across in 2 spots to form a WEB for the spider!
  • I added a little flare on the orange oval at the middle-right section, just for more fun!

Halloween Pumpkin Ideas

  • I gave the pumpkin spiders more webs, by adding some cut pieces of cheese cloth between each pumpkin.
  • I cut a whole in the bottom of the B pumpkin and the middle O pumpkin and stacked them on their stems
  • Enjoy!
