Halloween Chalkboard Pumpkin

Halloween Chalkboard Pumpkin was one of my favorite crafts to make this season. This was the first time I used chalkboard paint, and will not be the last. I am hooked on how much fun it is! It was applied like normal paint and dries in a minimal amount of time. Applying the chalk was so easy too! It wipes right off with a paper towel if needed and does not wear off once applied on the pumpkin.

This is an ideal craft to get the whole family involved, especially the kids! I had so much fun improvising and painting whatever I felt like on the pumpkin. It took minimal time to make and makes for the perfect Halloween decor!
