Hi everyone! I’m Shannah from Just Us Four
and I am so excited to be part of Vanessa’s 20 Crafty Days of Halloween!
Today, I am sharing my witch pumpkin with you.
Ever since I had my two children,
Halloween has become one of my absolute favorite holidays. I love to
incorporate crafts and activities into our holiday preparations, like
these stenciled trick or treat bags, that I can get my
kids involved in or that I know they will love. This witch pumpkin is
definitely one of those things because, while I did most of the
painting, I let them direct what I painted!
We started with two basic items to get
started: a pumpkin and a hat.
My daughter chose the paint carefully and ended up with black and orange
in both satin and glitter finishes.
We painted the witch hat in the satin paint first…black on the rim and
orange on the peak.
Then, we added glitter to the rim for a fun little touch. Originally,
the glitter started in striped but quickly changed to the rim of the hat
being covered in glitter.
The face was created using some Martha Stewart adhesive stencils and
paint. The adhesive stencils are perfect for round objects like the
While our paint dried, we brainstormed on what to use for the witch’s
hair. My daughter had a little hair clip she used last Halloween so we
just clipped that to the stem of the pumpkin. We placed the finished
hat on top and our witch was done.
