Halloween sans a pumpkin is like Christmas sans a tree. If you desire to do something new and innovative with your pumpkin this Halloween then try out the glow in the dark art that would add to the eeriness of the festival. The best part of it is that you could conveniently avoid the tedious methods of carving and be simple and quick in your presentation. Check out these informative tutorials to make your task an easy and fun-filled one.
If you want to save yourself from the hassle of carving, then this idea would be apt for you. If you are adept at drawing then make a pretty Jack-o-Lantern face rather than tracing it. You can even sketch Sally’s picture on another pumpkin to bring in the perfect Halloween fervor.
The abstract geometric designs give the pumpkin an elegant look.
Another interesting idea would be to randomly dab a glow in the dark paint on a few of the pumpkins and use a printed template to design a skull on the one in the middle as shown in the image below.
You can also draw or trace Jack and Sally hand in hand to create the Nightmare Before Christmas theme.
The different patterns give the pumpkins an appealing look.
Purchase a glow in the dark vampire teeth and follow the instructions in the given tutorial for a scary pumpkin.
To commemorate the Day of the Dead, you can design this beautiful skeleton following the given tutorial. The only step you would need to add is to use a glow in the dark paint if you wish to give that effect.
If you have superhero fans at home, then trace out a template of their favorites like Superman, Spiderman or Batman and apply glow in the dark paint for the special effect. On the other hand, your girls would love to see their favorite Disney princesses drawn out on the pumpkins.
Your trick-or-treaters would get a lovely welcome as they come ransacking your property.
Keep it under the sunlight for a long time to get a perfect glowing effect.
Write interesting messages that may be hidden apparently but visible eventually as light falls on it.
To googly eyes staring in darkness would be enough to send a chill down your spine.
Arranging a pumpkin tree in one corner of the room would make for a magnificent show piece.
The ribcage, heart and skeletal face carved on the pumpkin gives it an exceedingly creepy look. For a glow in the dark effect, you would need to spray it with glow powder or use glow in the dark paint and place it under a light source for a stunning effect. If your kids are ardent in carving a pumpkin buy a glow in the dark kit for them to make their task an easy one.
Hope you and your kiddo have an enjoyable tryst with these glow in the dark pumpkins for Halloween. Go a step further and stitch a glow in the dark costume for your little princess along with pumpkin glow in the dark nail polish. Be a proud mom when a sea of compliments are bestowed upon her.
