Pumpkin decorating with a monochromatic twist


While out at the pumpkin patch a few weekends ago, Tuesday and I stumbled upon a large bin of small white pumpkins. We loved how much of a change they were from the traditional orange Jack-o’-lantern. They also seemed like the perfect blank canvas for some monochromatic fall décor.

A week and twenty pumpkins later, we hosted a pumpkin decorating party with some of our talented Hallmark friends. It was great to take a break from our work and just doodle for an hour. Some of us were inspired by simple geometric patterns and some were inspired by seasonal themes. Because the pumpkins we worked with were on the smaller side, we especially love how great they look clustered together.


This project was super simple and fun. We hope you’re inspired to create your own. Here are some materials we suggest you try:

  • black permanent markers
  • metallic permanent markers
  • black chalkboard paint
  • chalk pens
  • metallic paint
  • paper elements.





We would love to see how you’re decorating pumpkins this fall. Tag us in your instagram photos (@think.make.share) and use the hashtag #sharehallmark. And check out what’s going on in Hallmark stores for the scary season!
