Fall is here, and what better way to celebrate than with an easy painted pumpkin! I’m serious when I say, no art skills are necessary. All you need is a white pumpkin, Sharpie paint markers, and about an hour!

Take a different color marker (I used these paint markers, which have a finer point), and draw little curved dashes around your flowers, simulating petals. Take a green paint marker and draw simple curved lines for vines, and oval leaf shapes.
