It would be a great painting project to add along with my fall or Halloween door hangers!

Want to see how I painted mine?

I painted my whole banner live as a tutorial on my Facebook page while my Painter’s Clubhouse membership group was open. (It only opens twice a year so I get pretty excited about it!) If you’re not already on the waitlist – sign up now and you’ll be one of the first to know when it opens again.

First of all, everyone is going crazy for this wooden pumpkin banner from Target right now. It’s only $3.00 at the Dollar Spot, so if you haven’t picked one up yet, run over and grab one! Then all you have to do is paint your autumn designs and it’s ready to hang up!

Now for the fun part – picking out patterns to paint the pumpkins! I thought it would be fun to paint each pumpkin with a different pattern or textured look, so we brainstormed on facebook to think about all of the possible patterns we could do! There are so many options – buffalo plaid, swirls, ombre, polka dot, paisley, chevron, striped…our list got long…

I painted the first two pumpkins in my next facebook live video. One was in my favorite teal green with light turquoise polka dots, and the other was white with metallic gold paint stripes: 

Look at how cute they turned out!

Next we painted a leopard print and a paisley pumpkin. See how we did these fun patterns here:

I used the same color palette as the first but added new accent colors for them:

For the last three, I went with a turquoise buffalo plaid, a gold diamond pattern, and an orange and white chevron print:

And here they are!

I was so pleased with how the banner turned out.

I decided to hang the banner from my kitchen shelf along with some other fall accents. Buffalo plaid mini-pumpkins, gold glittered orange pumpkins, cotton bolls in a blue jar, and a lantern with mini-pumpkins inside. It’s next to my rooster and some burlap greenery.

You could hang this banner anywhere, though! It’s a perfect touch in October with your Halloween decorations, or paint it in harvest colors and make it part of your Thanksgiving tablescape decor! It would look great on a living room mantel, a dining room china cabinet, or even outside on a covered porch next to your mums and gourds! If you’re adding it to your porch, you should consider painting this pumpkin topiary porch sitter as well. It would be the perfect addition this fall!

Here’s how mine looked once I put it all together:

Don’t you love it? If you want to paint one but aren’t sure what supplies to use, take a look in my online shop or my Amazon store for all of my favorite supplies. And don’t forget that I have pattern stencils in my shop, too, although you can definitely freehand these!

If you watched the videos and are excited about the Painter’s Clubhouse, make sure you get on the waitlist so we can paint together soon!

My Theory on Creativity

Despite what our grumpy middle school art teachers may have had us believe, in my opinion, creativity isn’t something you’re “born with.” It’s less like a magic fairy that sits on your shoulder and more like a muscle —you don’t know how strong it is until you push it. Creativity is something we all possess, but many of us don’t realize it. We’ve been conditioned to undervalue any abilities that aren’t praised or regarded as “important.”
