DIY Glittery Color Blocked Painted Pumpkins

disco pumpkins diy with title no carve pumpkins

I love no carve pumpkins! And I love bright colors too. This Disco Pumpkin DIY is perfect for anyone looking for an easy fall decor that goes beyond the usual Halloween pumpkin carving. It’s perfect for the whole fall season because it’s modern and cool. These pumpkins are rainbow, color blocked, and glittery!

You can use any color palette but I love using bright colors to get away from the traditional fall color palette. I used an ombre because you know I’m a fan – here’s our Ombre Pumpkin DIY if you are looking for just a straight and simple ombre.

First, tape the pumpkins. I made a cool color block triangle shape. It’s important that one side of the tape, the edge that connects to the part you are going to paint, is taped down thoroughly. That edge needs to be as straight as possible to create a clean painted line. The other side does not need to be perfect.

I like to compare the angles to get a sense of your overall look for your Disco Pumpkins DIY. Now we get to have some fun!

Use your brushes to give your pumpkins a thick layer of white. Painting the pumpkins white will help your color blocking look bold and bright. Make sure you let your pumpkins completely dry before adding a coat of color. Acrylic paint dries quickly so it should just take a few minutes to dry.

Now, using a separate brush add your color. Apply it thick and add a second coat if you need to even out the color.
