  • 1-2 cans Cement like spray paint recommended for 2 pumpkins
  • Various colors of terracotta colored acrylic paint
  • White acrylic paint
  • Water
  • Foam paint brushes
  • Gloves
  • Cups for paint
  • Optional: Matte sealing paint
  • Optional: flour
  • Optional: Joint Compound
  • Optional: Air dry clay


  • Spray paint the pumpkins with at least two coats of spray paint and then let dry.
  • Mix together the paint colors until you get a color you like. Then brush the paint onto the pumpkins and let dry.
  • Add a quarter-sized amount of white paint to a paper cup. Then add about 2 Tbsp. of water. This will give you enough white wash for 1 medium ceramic pumpkin.
  • Cover the pumpkin with the white wash and make sure to get it in all the cracks.
  • Let it dry for about 3-5 minutes and then blot it off.
  • Let the whole project dry and finish with a sealing spray if you want. Then enjoy!
