1. Gucci Pumpkin
My personal favorite is inspired by Gucci’s colorful striped sweater.
To make this pumpkin, paint 1-inch stripes in bright colors like yellow, hot pink, green, blue and orange, either by freehand or using painters tape. Then print out a copy of the Gucci sweater, cut out the tiger design and use Mod Podge to glue it in the middle of the pumpkin. Seal it with another coat of Mod Podge to finish the look.
2. Oscar de la Renta Pumpkin
This splattered paint look by Oscar de la Renta is as fun to make as it is to wear.
To make the splattered pumpkin, first give it a thick coat of white paint and let dry. Then set the pumpkin on a large covered surface and dispense colors like yellow, royal blue, olive green, black, red and pink into small cups. Water down the paint just a little so that it will easily splatter. Then have fun splattering paint onto the pumpkin with a large paint brush! It may be messy, but it’s worth it!
3. Golden Goose Sneakers Pumpkin
These velvety light pink sneakers by Golden Goose were the perfect inspiration for a simple pumpkin with a large white star.
To create a velvet-like look, use a paint brush or sponge to dab a light pink paint on the pumpkin rather than brush it on. This will give it a textured appearance. Once dry, stencil a star with a pencil and paint over it with white paint to finish this sneaker-inspired pumpkin.
4. Novis Pumpkin
In case you still want to embrace some darker colors this season, this A-line Novis dress is a great, simple inspiration, featuring color blocked lines.
To make this pumpkin, give it a coat of black paint. Once dry, use a small brush to paint a vertical line of red down the pumpkin, followed by horizontal lines of yellow and olive green along the bottom of the pumpkin. Finish it with an angled blue line at the top of the pumpkin.
5. Delpozo Pumpkin
Last but not least, this pumpkin is inspired by Delpozo’s floral paisley pattern with a bright red background. Although more difficult to make than the others, it pays off with pretty floral designs mixed with paisley.
First, use a pencil to outline two large teardrop-like designs and fill them in with light pink paint. Then paint the remaining portion of the pumpkin bright red. Once dry, use a small paint brush to dot purple paint around the pink teardrops to create an outline. Then add larger spaced dots of light blue paint around the pattern. Lastly, paint large, colorful flowers and leaves inside of the pink teardrops to imitate the unique floral paisley pattern.
