Pumpkins and Ghosts - Window Painting October 15, 2015 21:10

Do you have a window that needs some fun paintings for Halloween? We painted our window and wanted to share it with you.
Our back door has a plain glass window that I knew this project was perfect for. We use this door all the time and thought it would be fun to see something festive as we walked in the house.
What you will need....
  • Paint Pen - Black (Black paint works too. I just didn't have any at the time)
  • Orange, Green and White paint
  • Round Sponge Brush
  • Favorite Halloween Coloring Page or any black and white image you like.
I am not the greatest at freehand. So here is what I did.....

I found a larger pumpkin, lil pumpkin and a cute ghost online that was perfect. I printed the larger pumpkin in 3 different sizes and the ghost and lil pumpkin in one size.

To get started, I cut out each of the pumpkins and the ghost and taped them together on the door where I wanted them to go. (Tip...I taped it on the outside of the window. I would be painting from the inside.)



Start by tracing with your black paint/pen on the inside of the window. This was tricky for me because our window is double paned and I have to admit I got a little dizzy. LOL First I traced a quick thin line and when I was done, I went over it again using the thicker end of the pen. My lines are a little silly because of the dizziness. Hee Hee. But this was my first time. I am sure I'll get better. I am happy with it and it  turned out cute. Oh and I only needed one coat with the pen. With paint you will want to do a few layers and let dry in between.

Since I used the pen, and it dried quickly, I was able to paint the orange right away. So I grabbed a paper plate, squeezed some orange paint on there and used a round sponge to dap it on. I liked the look of the sponge too. Again only one layer was all it took for this step.



Finally, I added in the white on the ghost and the green stem for the little pumpkin at the bottom. Aside from the squiggly line on the pumpkins, I am pleased with how this turned out. Next time I will use black paint. But for now, I will just say that they are spooky pumpkins because of the ghost and that's why the pumpkins have a wiggle in them. Ha! Ha!



I think using the printed pages helped me with my tracing. Let me know what works for you.

What have you painted on your windows?
