Minecraft pumpkins are fun and easy to make. A little time consuming than a regular pumpkin but you’ll be the most talked about house on the street!!!
First cut the top off and take all the seeds etc out of the pumpkin. Draw the face with a thin magic marker. You can google the creeper face to get a pattern if you feel more comfortable. It doesn’t have to be perfect because you’re going to paint over it anyway. Next cut the eyes and the mouth out before you start to paint. Now you’re ready to paint.
Paint each pumpkin. Using a wide brush to paint is the easiest. We painted just to the bottom of the pumpkin to cover all the orange. Depending on the quality of your paint, you might need two coats to cover the pumpkin. We painted the edges of the eyes and mouth with a very thin brush dark gray for both pumpkins to give it a scarier look.
Now you have the coolest pumpkins on the street!
I’m Debi Collinson. Designer. Stager. Real Estate Investor. In 2006, at the request of a realtor, I staged my very first home. Staging houses was just starting to become popular. I was very nervous staging my first house, but the sellers liked their newly redesigned home so much that they turned down an offer for full asking price. I went back to design school and have never looked back. Since 2006, I have been staging & styling spaces to make them look like they belong in a magazine page, and buying “fixer uppers” to fix up & either sell for a healthy profit or to rent them out. I’m currently living in my 8th “fixer upper.” Sign up to receive my e-mails of how to make your home stunning, how to sell your house for top dollar AND how to become financially independent one fixer upper at a time! And I also makes cool pumpkins with my boys!!!
