How to Make Herringbone Mini Pumpkins

So let’s do this! These mini pumpkins are really simple to make and you just need two supplies.

Materials

Make Time: 10 Minutes

I’m pretty sure you are all smart enough to get the gist of how to make these buddies, but just to hear myself talk I’ll tell ya anyway.

  1. Start by tracing down each of the vertical pumpkin lines.
  2. Next, between two of the lines fill in the space with closely set diagonal lines. In the next space, repeat the diagonal lines at the opposite angle.
  3. Continue your way around the mini pumpkins until all of the space is filled in with the herringbone pattern.
  4. If you’re fancy, color the stem with the paint pens too! I think that’s maybe my favorite part.

Tips for creating Herringbone patterns with Paint Pens

I tried with a slim pen and also one with a heavier tip, so don’t be afraid to experiment! It’s a good idea to test out your pens first on a piece of scrap paper or the bottom of a pumpkin first. Sometimes it helps just to get a feel for the pen and how it releases ink.

To use the pens, it’s best to give them a good shake for at least 30 seconds to mix the ink. Then hold them vertically and press the nib down on a scrap piece of paper until the nib soaks in the ink. Then give a few practice strokes to really get the hang of it.

How to Display Your Mini Pumpkins

I love these mini pumpkins placed in a little bunch as a table centerpiece, or even up on your mantel! I also think the pattern would look great on full sized white pumpkins, too — set ’em on your front porch and let everyone ooh and aah. xoxo
