As Halloween approaches, you might be wondering what costume your baby, toddler or child will be wearing?
Nothing says All Hallows’ Eve like a spooky (or cute) pumpkin. And in this 3-step tutorial, using just 3 colours, we’ll show you how to turn your little one’s face into this classic Halloween symbol.
What you’ll need
- Black face paint
- Orange face paint
- Dark green face paint
- A make up or face paint brush
- A sponge
- Some water

Using a damp sponge and orange paint, apply a base coat over the whole face, leaving a clear area in the top corner of the forehead.
With dark green paint and the brush, draw on the stem of the pumpkin in the clear area, adding wiggly lines as leaves.
Now for the delicate part! Take the black paint, using a thin brush, and draw an outline around the orange base. Add in a few more lines to represent the grooves of the pumpkin on the cheeks and forehead, and you’re done!
