To make these pumpkins you'll need contact paper and acrylic paint. We used black but any color would work.
Cut your desired shapes out of the contact paper. This year we went for stripes and dots. It was the easy way out but we've done cats and stars before. Stick your contact paper on the pumpkins.
Then paint the whole pumpkin, contact paper and all.
Then peel off the contact paper and wa-la ... you have cute pumpkins!
