Carving a pumpkin is a traditional Halloween experience. But, no-carve pumpkins can be lots of fun too! This year we made a fun DIY Glowing Sugar Skull Pumpkin!
With young kids, carving pumpkins with sharp knives and tough-to-cut pumpkin rinds, can be stressful for me. I still like letting the kids get involved and doing Halloween crafts and no-carve pumpkins are great for kids. When I saw this glow in the dark paint in the Halloween section of our local craft store, I knew it would make a fun Halloween craft.
Living in Tucson, we often see a lot of sugar skulls around because of the local culture. Over the past few years I’ve started incorporating sugar skulls into my Halloween decor. Hence, this Glowing Sugar Skull Pumpkin craft!
DIY Glowing Sugar Skull Pumpkin
- Pumpkin, real or fake
- Tulip Glow in the Dark paint
- blacklight (optional but it looks really cool!)
- pencils (optional)
This DIY Glowing Sugar Skull Pumpkin isn’t too complicated but does take a steady hand and some creativity creating a design. Trace out your design with a pencil on your pumpkin. This will help you not make mistakes when you start with the paint.
Pull up different sugar skull pictures and let kids pick and choose what sugar skull features they like and want on the pumpkin. Flower eyes are a must!
Using a steady hand, trace your designs with the glow in the dark paint.
