I’ve been dying to try out a painting technique called Spin Art and with Halloween around the corner and The Imagination Tree posting their Spin Art Leaves and then looking gorgeous I just had to have a go and try some spin out with J and T.

How to make Spin Art Pumpkins
To fit in our Salad Spinner I cut the paper plates a little so they fitted in the bottom of the cage. J and then poured paint onto the plate and placed the lid on top.
J loves turning things, rotating and anything that spins so this was perfect for him. He had so much fun turning the dial to spin the paint out on the plate. We made LOADS of these and put them aside to dry.
As there was some spaces left by the spin art T and J spent time coloring in the gaps using wax crayons and pencil crayons. I then cut out some random spaces from some of our black gummed paper (if you don’t have gummed paper than construction paper glued in place would work as well) and J and T glued on faces to the pumpkins.
