I bought a small package of mini pumpkins for a few dollars and have been having great fun creating all kinds of pumpkins this fall. I shared a picture of this guy after getting a minty paint job on Instagram and was asking for ideas. The resounding answer was gold and glitter. Well, since gold is my number one go-to color, GOLD IT WAS. Today I am sharing how to create this adorable No Carve mint green + gold pumpkin.

The first step, which I don’t have a picture of is painting your pumpkin. This mint green paint is actually Martha Stewart’s mint green chalkboard paint
. I love the color of Martha’s chalkboard mint green paint!! I then painted the stem in a soft grass green acrylic paint.
Next, I drew five dots on an every other pumpkin section spacing with a gold paint pen
. I placed the dots at about the halfway point on the pumpkin. These would become the lowest dots in my design.
I slowly started filling in the pattern with my gold foil paint pen. A few dots I misplaced, but with a few strokes of the mint green paint, they were erased and could be painted again.
I love how this little guy turned out! I wish I would have used a faux pumpkin, so I could have him for next year.
He is just soo minty fresh.
Have you done no carve pumpkins in the past? What was your favorite design?
