Paint the Perfect Pumpkin

It's almost Halloween, but don't despair if you haven't carved your pumpkin yet. There is still plenty of time left.

For those of you who are a little bored with the typical pumpkin carving technique, try painting your pumpkin's face and outfitting the gourd with some accessories.

This is a great option for little kids, too. There's much less mess (barring any paint spills) and there's no risk of little fingers getting cut.

Use a pencil to outline your design and fill in the face with poster paint.

For a more dramatic look, head outside and spray-paint the entire pumpkin before adding on the face. Silver or gold make great base colors, and green is perfect for a witch.

Since Where the Wild Things Are came in at number one at the box office this weekend, you might want to try to create your own Wild Thing. Paint the face of your favorite gentle monster on the front of the pumpkin and glue fake fur or feathers all around to create a shaggy mane of hair.

When you're all finished and the paint is dry, outfit your pumpkin with some accessories like a top hat, a fedora, a construction hat, safety glasses or a firefighter's helmet.

Take a Polaroid of everyone with their pumpkin and hand the pics out as party favors.ADNFCR-2319-ID-19416176-ADNFCR
