Full Answer

  1. Find a dinosaur image

    Search online for an image of a dinosaur. The image should have a solid edge line. Print the picture out on standard computer paper.

  2. Create the stencil

    Use a razor knife to cut the dinosaur out of your paper to create a stencil. Cut carefully in detailed sections to preserve the lines. Do not cut through the edges of the paper.

  3. Draw your design on the pumpkin

    Buy a pumpkin that is larger than your dinosaur stencil. Wipe the pumpkin down to remove any dirt. Tape the stencil to the pumpkin using masking tape. With a marker, trace around the edges of the stencil to transfer the dinosaur shape onto the pumpkin.

  4. Paint the dinosaur

    Use acrylic paint and a paintbrush to fill in your dinosaur shape on the surface of the pumpkin. Allow the first coat of paint to dry completely before using other paint colors to add eyes, a mouth, teeth and other details.
