For this story, I decided to have my family paint some pumpkins to tell the story first hand and it was a fun night for sure although a bit messy.
I made sure that my nephew — who is an artist, as you’ll see — got the biggest pumpkin to paint and told him to paint what he wanted. He’s a big Batman guy and has been the Joker for Halloween more years in a row than I can count, so naturally, he picked The Joker.
I filmed him painting his favorite clown in a two-minute step by step video so anyone can do it.
My kids painted as well and as anyone can see, it’s quite easy to paint pumpkins, all you really need is a bunch of paint, a pumpkin and some imagination.
Check out what we came up with and then some painted pumpkins that inspired us from around the world.
