Black Glue Pumpkin Craft Instructions:

STEP 1: Make the black glue paint.

First, we have to make the black glue paint. To do that, you just need to mix black tempera paint with glue. You can eyeball it or use the ratio of approximately 1 tablespoon to 4 ounces.

Just keep in mind the black paint will make the finished glue paint runnier. I recommend tracing some lines of black glue before starting the actual craft to ensure the paint's texture and flow are correct.

STEP 2: Prep the pumpkin printable.

Gather your supplies and take your thick paper (or cardstock) you'll use as the base. Print your chosen pumpkin printable onto your paper. There are 6 different pumpkin printables to choose from using the link at the bottom of the page.

STEP 3: Add black glue lines.

Now, take the black glue paint you made in the first step and start tracing the lines on the pumpkin printable. Use the black glue straight from the glue container. For any tiny details you can use something small like a toothpick or the end of a brush.

STEP 5: Paint your pumpkin.

It's time to add some colour! Use your watercolours in shades of red, yellow and orange to create a whimsical style, or alternatively you could also use acrylic paints if you want a more opaque pumpkin colour!
