To go along with our trip to the pumpkin patch we made some fun pumpkin patch art using a toilet paper roll to stamp on our pumpkins. I have been really excited about this art project, especially to see how unique every one's picture turned out, and the boys really enjoyed it because we used some new painting techniques we haven't used before.
To make this project we used our trusty tempera paint we received from our friends at Craft Project Ideas. I know I've mentioned this before, but my favorite thing about Kids Crafts Products is that I can pick them at Wal-Mart when I'm doing my grocery shopping and don't have to make a special trip to a craft store. You will definitely want to use tempera paint for this project instead of acrylic because it is more water based and thinner.
After painting on the stems, let your picture dry completely. When the pumpkins are completely dry, add green paint to your candy making bottle and paint on the pumpkin vine. Make sure all the pumpkins are connected to the vine. Then you are done!
