DIY Chalk Paint Pumpkins

Looking for a modern and stylish approach to Halloween décor? Skip the pumpkin brains and go for no-carve chalk paint pumpkins. They seamlessly match your modern farmhouse décor, and colour combinations are endless!

What You'll Need

Decorative or real pumpkins in various sizes and shapes

Chalk paint in your choice of modern colours

Metallic acrylic paint

Sponge brush

Small paint brush

Small bristle paint brush


  1. 1. Using the sponge brush, cover your pumpkin with a coat of chalk paint. Set aside to dry for at least 1 hour.


  1. 2. Add additional coats of paint until you reach your desired coverage; 3-4 coats should do the trick! Clean the brush with soap and water between coats.


  1. 3. Paint the pumpkin stems using metallic acrylic paint and the small paint brush. Let dry completely before handling.
  1. 4. Use your new décor pieces as part of a fall tablescape, or scatter them throughout the home! Your imagination is the only limitation.
