'Bustle' put together a tutorial for DIY pumpkins that are perfect for Halloween. While carving a pumpkin is a long-standing fall tradition, it can be a messy and time-consuming task. These painted pumpkins provide a fun and easy alternative to carving a traditional jack-o-lantern.
To turn the gourds into emojis, all that's required is acrylic paint and a black marker. Once the pumpkins have been painted bright yellow, the rest of the features can be added. The marker can be used to outline each feature and make the colors stand out in the dark. Because emojis are fairly basic icons, the tutorial requires minimal artistic skill. The end result is a series of jack-o-lanterns that are perfect for Halloween.
The tutorial is ideal for Millennials who are looking to add a pop culture twist to conventional Halloween decor.
