This is the perfect fall project to do with kids, that you can actually keep as decor for your house. Paint pouring is a really fun art project to do with kids, because what little one doesn’t love to squeeze the paint bottle?! It can’t just be my kids. I’m constantly warning them not to use too much or that we need to make sure we don’t waste it. They couldn’t believe their ears when I told them they could squeeze as much paint as they wanted for our paint poured pumpkins project!
What You Need:
- metallic/glitter acrylic paint
- small pumpkins (or large but you would need a lot of paint)
- small recyclable container (a yogurt container or tin can would be perfect)
I used an empty yogurt container as a stand for the pumpkin to really help the paint drip. I also cut a hole in the bottom of it so that the kids could put the pumpkin upside down if they wanted to create a different effect.
What to do:
- Place a pumpkin on top of a recyclable container such as a yogurt cup, and place that onto a tray (it will be full of paint by the end).
- Squeeze the paint on the top of the pumpkin, letting it drip all over the sides and off of the bottom.
- Continue to layer the paint with as many different colors as you like and let dry!
My kids were able to make these completely on their own! Aren’t they cute?
