Cute ways to paint pumpkins include painting them to look like goofy faces, friendly monster faces and sport balls. Painting a letter on each pumpkin and arranging them to spell out a short word is also a cute idea.
When painting goofy faces on pumpkins, make the eyes and the noses big and round, and make the teeth protrude. Friendly monster pumpkins can feature the faces of benign monster characters, such as Cookie Monster from "Sesame Street" or Mike Wazowski from "Monsters Inc."
To make sport ball pumpkins, paint round pumpkins to look like basketballs or soccer balls and longer, oval-shaped pumpkins to look like footballs.
