Raising a houseful of boys you are bound to have at least one who loves Star Wars, right?
Try every single boy in this house loves Star Wars!
We have seen every movie.
Even when a new one hits the theatre, they want to see it. As soon as possible.
We have lightsabers galore. And gliding them through the air is an art they have all mastered. Even the youngest one.
It just seemed perfect to create a Star Wars inspired pumpkin for our door step. R2D2 is the perfect character! Super easy to create, even for those who do not have an artsy bone in their body.
- black, blue, red and white acrylic paint
- paint brushes
- Bounty Paper Towels for clean up (Hello, limited time Star Wars print!)
First, we covered the entire pumpkin in white. Let that dry 100% before moving on.
This is something super easy the kids will enjoy helping you with.
The paper towels came in handy for cleaning our brushes in between work.
Once the white is dry, mix some black and white to make grey.
Color the top 1/4the of the pumpkin grey. See below to see how we did it.
Then, grab you blue and add in the blue areas. Just follow our image below.
Also, add a red “eye” just like we did.
Use the black to trace about some of the areas to make them stand out.
Also use the black paint to trace around some of the blue areas.
And that is it! It really is that simple. We created this in no time. Waiting for the colors to dry before moving on to the next step, was the longest part.
We can still do the messy projects with our kids. Remember, it is all about making memories. Bounty is there to help make clean up a breeze!!
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters December 15 and Bounty is celebrating with the release of its new, limited-edition Star Wars prints. On shelves now and available in both paper towels and quilted napkins, the prints feature some of your favorite Star Wars characters, and are a perfect fit for Halloween activities!
What is best advice for embracing the mess so you can make memories this Halloween season?
