Hi. My name is Terina Gillette, and I'm a professional event coordinator, and today we're going to talk about how to write on pumpkin. Some of the tools that you'll need for this project are a pumpkin, a permanent marker, acrylic craft paint, a tray or a Styrofoam plate to put that in, and a round liner brush. One thing that you can do is write directly on the pumpkin. Make sure it's fresh and clean. Write your saying directly onto the pumpkin, and you want to, you can fill that in a little bit. Make it thicker, thin or as thick as you want and draw designs on it or write anything that you'd like and any kind of saying that you would like to have. And you can actually leave it just like this, write your saying or your verse, add your designs. Or something that works really nice is to use the acrylic paint. And you can go directly over this which is what I plan to do on this for this particular pumpkin. Or you can just paint directly onto your pumpkin with your acrylic paint. Acrylic paint is good to use because it is weather proof. We just trace an outline in your words. And you can use any colors that you would like that matches your scheme. Do let this completely dry before you set it outside in the weather. And you can also maybe add some embellishments to the side of your writing. And this is a method to write on your holiday pumpkin.
