When I received my box of Martha Stewart Crafts supplies I had no idea how versatile they could be… until I started using them. One of the first things I created was this chalkboard pumpkin, using a dollar store craft pumpkin and some chalkboard paint. This could quite possibly be the easiest Halloween craft you’ll make this month.

Apply one coat of chalkboard paint to the entire pumpkin and allow to dry completely.
Apply a second coat of chalkboard paint and allow to dry completely. (This is as hard as it gets.)
Prime the pumpkin by scribbling all over the pumpkin with chalk and then cleaning it off with a dry cloth.
Draw a face on your pumpkin! The beauty of this project is that you can’t mess up, and you can wipe it clean and change the face as many times as you want to. Your kids will have a blast drawing the faces on their pumpkins too. It’s something that they can do on their own and display with pride. I love those kinds of projects.
