Start by painting your pumpkins. With chalk paint, one coat is often enough, but if you want more coverage, add a second coat, then set them aside to fully dry.
Preparing the Image
Pop open the Cricut Design Space.
Click on the “+” sign to start a new project, opening up a blank canvas.
Click on the Upload button from the toolbar to insert the Easy Farmhouse Painted Pumpkins SVG file on to the canvas.
If you’re not cutting all the words, ungroup the letters, then select which words you would like to cut.
Select all the letters in the word you will be cutting, then group those letters together. Resize the word to fit on your pumpkin. Letters for the dollar store pumpkins used in this project were sized to be 1 inch tall.
Delete the remaining words, and weld the rest together.
Cut the words on the black vinyl and weed the excess vinyl from around each word.
Grab your painted pumpkins and make sure they’re fully dry.
Place transfer tape over each word and transfer the vinyl to the front of each pumpkin, starting in the middle of the word and pressing outward to adhere the vinyl to the pumpkin.
Press each letter into the pumpkin firmly, then remove the transfer tape.
Now you’ve got the cutest little farmhouse pumpkins around!
I simple adore this easy way to add some stylish flair to your home! BONUS it’s a fun fall project that doesn’t require spending a lot of money!
Feeling a little extra? Try adding a little bit of glitter to the pumpkins for a pop of BLING. There’s more than a few ways to use this fall pumpkin craft to add some personality to your fall decor.
