I’m always looking for ways to decorate pumpkins that are easy, different and fun. Here’s a simple and great way to decorate a pumpkin that involves very few supplies and you make Zentangles. Zentangles are designs made with a structured pattern.
Here’s what you need:
- Permanent Black Marker (Ultra Fine Point)
- White Pumpkin But Any Color Will Work
Just begin by drawing your Zentangle pattern with your Ultra fine point permanent marker on your pumpkin. You’re done when it looks complete! I used a small real white pumpkin that I got at a local farmer’s market, but if you want to save your Zentangle pumpkin design for next year, you will want to use the foam ones. HINT: Because I used a “real” pumpkin, the tip of my marker would get coated in a waxy like substance from the pumpkin skin, so I used a scrap piece of paper to scribble on to unclog the marker tip and get it flowing again.
If you are not sure what a Zentangle is, you can learn more about WHAT they are and HOW to create them here…
I hope you give this a try and find it to be a relaxing and creative outlet, I know I do!
