Pyrex Pumpkin! Inspired by Pyrex Blowing Leaves

My fellow Pyrex collectors will love this DIY Pyrex pumpkin!

I’ve already sold some of my beaded Christmas spiders so I really needed to get cracking and make some more, but first I had to make one last Halloween craft.  And these turquoise painted pumpkins, inspired by my favorite vintage Pyrex pattern: Blowing Leaves, were too cute not to share!

I am loving these painted Pyrex pumpkins!

After painting a series of pumpkins turquoise for my easy turquoise rhinestone pumpkins, I started dreaming about a Pyrex-inspired painted pumpkin.  I eyed up my turquoise Pyrex collection and plucked the Blowing Leaves casserole from the top shelf.   The how-to is really simple, but it takes a steady hand.

How to Make a Painted Pumpkin:

The tutorial for this is super simple!  Using the Craft Smart Paint Pen (found at Michael’s – this one is similar), I just freehand drew the design of mod leaves.

It is TRICKY to draw on a pumpkin because it’s round and lumpy, and my design is admittedly a little wonky, but it turned out so adorably cute.  Here are some tips for a more perfect Pyrex painted pumpkin (say that five times fast!)

Some tips:

  • I think this would be a little easier on a large pumpkin, which would afford more space for a more detailed design.
  • Try to choose as smooth a pumpkin as possible – faux would work even better!
  • If you need to, try drawing your design on a piece of paper first for practise

There are so many Pyrex patterns that would look perfect on a painted pumpkin.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween!  If you’re craving a sweet treat but can’t stomach any more candy, I highly recommend baking up a batch of these easy chocolate raspberry hand pies tonight.

P.S. Don’t Forget to Pin for Later!

      I saw that this year! I wish they'd used purple, lol. We don't actually get any tricker treaters out here because we live in the sticks. All of my decorations stayed inside.
