Where has chalkboard paint been all my life?! After using it for this craft project I'm completely hooked. And I can tell you, it's going to take all my crafty restraint not to paint the entire house with it because I love it that much. That said, don't be surprised if there's more chalkboard paint posts in the future because I'm already brainstorming.
As you can guess, I painted a pumpkin with some chalkboard paint. What I like about this project is that you can keep the pumpkin for years to come. Also, children can participate in this craft by drawing on the pumpkin. If they mess up, no problem, just erase and draw again.
Brief "how-to" below:
Chalkboard Spray Paint - comes in orange too!
Cover pumpkin stem with painters tape. Spray pumpkin with about three coats of paint. Let dry for 24 hours. Start drawing.
