If you have some uncarved pumpkins lingering around your home, you’re probably looking for a way to transition them from spooky October holidays to more family-oriented November gatherings. Luckily, today we’re sharing a fun and easy way to decorate with them for Thanksgiving.
Silhouette pumpkins have been all the rage for the past few years, but we think this wildlife adaptation on the traditional silhouette provides a seasonal twist to the trend. You could go even more Thanksgiving-themed by using turkey silhouettes on your pumpkins, too.
This DIY project is quite simple. (So simple, in fact, that you can do this DIY in front of a favorite movie if you prefer.) To get started, here’s what you’ll need:
• Pumpkins. We used Cinderella pumpkins for their unusual coloring. Use one pumpkin per silhouette.
• Silhouette patterns. We used the animal silhouettes from Karen’s Whimsy.
• Paint (acrylic or house paint works fine)
• Paintbrushes. At least a larger brush and a very fine point brush are needed.
After you find and print the stencils you like, cut around the silhouette. Use your tape to tape the silhouette pattern onto your pumpkin, positioning it as you like best. Then, carefully trace around the pattern with your pen.
Remove the stencil, and then use your brushes and paint to fill in the silhouette. You will likely have to use two to three coats of paint to create your silhouette.
The pumpkins could easily be incorporated into a Thanksgiving centerpiece. To save room on the Thanksgiving table, try painting mini-silhouettes on miniature pumpkins. We also love the idea of using mini-pumpkin silhouettes as a placecard for Thanksgiving dinner guests. Of course, you could also feature your vignette on an entry table or console, or your fireplace mantel.
