I love painting pumpkins as you saw in my chalk paint studded pumpkins post and today painted a leopard pumpkin inspired by my new favorite shoes. it’s a super easy and quick little project that works on faux and real pumpkins.
In our tiny house I don’t have room for a collection of large pumpkins and it honestly always irks me to buy them and then have to see them rot and then throw them out.
So I usually go for small pumpkins.
And since I have a new favorite pair of leopard wedges that I can’t stop wearing, I thought that the simple leopard pattern would be perfect for a tiny pumpkin. It’s a simple leopard pattern, meaning it’s only a plain beige background (no variations) and the simple dark brown spots.
I started out with painting the little pumpkin a beige-brown with acrylic craft paint:
After it dried I just used a small hard bristle brush to paint in the uneven spots. It’s uneven, not perfect and I like it that way. It was a fast and easy little project that added a little touch of fall to our tiny little kitchen.
Just copy the pattern of my pumpkin below.
You could even just use a black sharpie for it too.
See the fur isn’t even and perfect either.
The shoes are really pretty too, right? Oh and you can buy them right HERE*
