 Sharpie mandala pumpkins

To make Sharpie mandala pumpkins, you will need:

  • A pumpkin (pick a round one with smooth, firm flesh and few blemishes)
  • A metallic Sharpie (I chose silver, but gold or bronze would work well too)
  • A ruler
  • Your imagination!

No-carve Sharpie mandala pumpkins

How to make Sharpie mandala pumpkins:

  • Use this guide from Art is Fun to mark out the dots that will be your mandala guide points, using the pumpkin stalk as your centre point
  • Draw around the base of your pumpkin stalk to give your first base line
  • Work outwards in concentric circular sections in whatever design you wish (I used chains, hearts, leaves, feathers, spirals and paisley patterns)
  • Add extra detail – in this case, more is more!

Wouldn’t these make great centrepieces for an Autumn wedding?

    Love doodling, so this is a great alternative to carving the pumpkin – why waste it by carving when you can decorate it and eat it afterwards! Thanks!
