To make painted owl pumpkins, first paint the chosen pumpkins solid white or black. Then, using a permanent market, draw large circles for the owl eyes, a triangle for the beak and ovals for the wings. Decorate the owl with swirls, stars, waves or flowers depending on preference. Use a silver permanent market on a black pumpkin, and a black one on a silver pumpkin.

Make chalkboard pumpkins by painting a pumpkin with chalkboard paint. Once dry, use chalk to decorate the pumpkin temporarily. Change the decorations when desired. Similarly, make spatter ware pumpkins by first painting a pumpkin a solid color such as red, white or yellow. Splatter the pumpkin with other colors to make random patterns.

Create candy corn pumpkins by first painting the entire pumpkin white. Paint a stripe of orange in the middle of the pumpkin and a stripe of yellow at the bottom. The stripes should grow larger at the bottom, just like real candy corn. Using a clean sponge, smudge the edges between the colors for smooth lines.
