Here's how...
1. Spray each pumpkin with one solid color. Let fully dry, about 30 minutes.
2. Use painter's tape to tape all the way around the center.
3. Spray above the painters tape with the base color one more time (this will make a cleaner line once you remove the tape). Let dry.
4. Spray above the painters tape with the second color. Let dry and then remove tape.

Remember, you can choose any colors you want! We went with a tonal color-block, but you can mix it up however suits your mood. Make a bunch and stack them on your steps to greet trick-or-treaters, or just make a few and cluster them by your door. They're great, too, because they transition perfectly into November as festive fall decor!
