How To Create a Pink and Gold Pumpkin | Pink and Gold Pumpkin Tutorial

Hi everyone!

So, I know Halloween is in a week so let’s get into this tutorial quickly so you can enjoy it before the end of the season πŸ™‚

My pumpkin is ceramic and was originally white haha. I got it from Michael Craft Store and I painted it to make it my own. It also lights up. You can do this with any pumpkin: real or fake.

If you are using a real pumpkin you can either…

Carve “Spooky” and the stars and moons (or any other design you want)

or draw it on

and if it’s a fake pumpkin that is not this ceramic one then I suggest drawing on “Spooky” and the stars and moons or any other design you would rather put.

it lights up and changes colours every few seconds πŸ™‚


I first started out with going to Michaels where I saw this pumpkin and got really inspired to do this πŸ™‚

I picked up pink acrylic paint and a gold sharpie that can be used on lots of different materials


You Will Need



Paint brushes

Garbage bag to keep your workspace clean


I first started with colouring in the word “Spooky” and all the stars in moon with my gold sharpie

Then I painted the whole pumpkin pink while being careful around the designs

I then went in with a smaller paint brush to paint around the words and stars and moons

and finally, I touched up “Spooky” and the stars and moons with a second layer of gold sharpie to perfect it. I also added polka dots to the stem πŸ™‚

I let it dry and voila! It’s very easy to do


Now, if you are carving a real pumpkin, do the same steps but before starting carve out your designs and outline them with your sharpie


Hope you enjoyed! Would you create a pumpkin like this?

Have a safe and fun Halloween!

Love always,

Annabel xoxo
