Strip your baby and paint an even amount of orange paint across their bum. Press their bottom firmly on the middle of the canvas. Clean with wipes or a bath if necessary (our little guy got quite messy).

Now you have your ‘bum’pkin. I used the tip of a foam brush to make a green stem.

Now using a paint writer (we got a fabric paint one) or a marker write out your message. I have also done all my kids at once on a larger canvas and written : ‘Robertson’s ‘Bum’pkin Patch’. Don’t forget the year!

Even if you aren’t ‘crafty’ this DIY is so simple and cute it’s worth a little mess. The pictures alone made the clean up worth it!
