One of my relatives made close to $1,000 one October painting pumpkins. It is a simple and fun money making activity the whole family will enjoy.
In order to make money pumpkin painting, you will need to get a great price on pumpkins, paint simple designs and sell them at local craft fairs and other events.
The first step is to get a great price on pumpkins. Visit or call several pumpkin patches to negotiate your best price on pumpkins. You will want to make several hundred pumpkins. The lower the price you purchase your pumpkins for, the more you can make. Do not pay retail for the pumpkins or you will not make any money.
You can purchase stencils at craft supply stores. Or if you prefer you can purchase a kit with pre-made designs for pumpkin decorating like this one; Pumpkin Painting. Or pick up a book with design ideas; Pumpkin Painting
For design ideas, think of using colors for sports teams, flowers, funny faces and more. Remember the more complicated the design the more you will want to charge.
You can also purchase or use items around the house to add “character” to your pumpkins. Baseball caps, yarn for hair, rhinestones…..let your creativity go wild.
Sell your pumpkins at yard sales, craft fairs, roadside stalls etc. To price your pumpkins factor in the price you paid for the pumpkins and material and add on a fee to cover your labor and time involved.
This is a great activity the whole family will love and you can make some nice extra cash!
