What you need:
Acrylic paint (can be bought in sets or individual tubes)
Small pumpkins (found at Marsh, Target or Walmart)
Make sure your pumpkin is clean of any dirt. Wipe it with a wet paper towel.

Paint the pumpkin white. You will need to put on a second coat to fully cover the pumpkin in white. Let it dry.
