We loved going to Mint because it enabled us connect with friends and we didn’t have to worry about cleaning up glitter from our house weeks later. Our husbands have already thanked us!

If you are still wanting to paint pumpkins but can’t make it to Mint Studio, here is a list of some of the items that you might want to pick up:

  1. White decorative pumpkins These work well if you want your pumpkin to last throughout Thanksgiving and you can also use it the following year.
  2. Glitter assortment
  3. Die-cut machine This is how those letters turned out so perfect. Or you can do calligraphy
  4. Paint Set We like the colors in this Martha Stewart set, but chose your favorites and make it personal. Chalk paints also work well on real pumpkins

First apply the die-cut lettering, then use a sponge to apply Hod Podge in the desired area. Lastly, apply sequins and let dry.
