Vampire Pumpkin Painting

This past week, one of my great friends came over to the apartment and we did a girls night. I don’t remember the last time I painted instead of carved a pumpkin and it was a blast! We talked and laughed as we made up some gluten free pumpkin chocolate chip muffins (shout out to Trader Joe’s for the mix!), popped open a bottle of champagne for mimosas, and painted. She is an amazing artist, so while she did a portrait of Edward Scissorhands on her pumpkin, I decided to make a fun cartoon vampire mouth.

Comment below with what you will paint on your pumpkin this year for Halloween!


  • Small fake pumpkin (I found mine at Michael’s Crafts)
  • Miscellaneous paint
  • Sharpie
  • Paintbrush


Normally I would sketch my drawing out with a pencil before starting but with this one I let my brush do that work for me. Work your way around the large outline of the lips with the desired lip shade.

Use the sharpie to outline the inside of the mouth and teeth.

Fill in the lips with the lip shade and the inside of the mouth with black.

To make the teeth more striking against the cream/white pumpkin, I painted the teeth white.
