I had a beautiful pumpkin left over from Thanksgiving and Halloween. I really hated to throw it away. I had seen a Grinch head made into a pumpkin at a friend's house and so I decided that would be a great way to save my pumpkin.
I bought some lime green paint and just drizzled it right onto the pumpkin. I used a foam brush to spread all the paint over the pumpkin.
It took about 3 coats of paint to get it to the point that I felt was good enough coverage to start painting the face.
I printed out a couple of Grinch faces that I found on Google images. I liked the mouth better on the green picture, but the bottom picture was better for the eyes and eyebrows.
I hand drew the face onto the pumpkin. I found the best spot on the pumpkin for the nose, which was a bump that stuck out a little. I also like the depression in the pumpkin on the left. I thought it would look like a dimple.
I used a paint brush to paint it all on. I started with the yellow of the eyes. I painted a couple of coats of yellow. Then I painted the red, and lastly I painted the black.
I added the Santa hat by pinning it onto the pumpkin so
that I could use it again.
I loved how it turned out! It also prolonged the life
of my beautiful pumpkin :)
