Pumpkin Bowling

Today I’m sharing an easy project using recycled bottles. I painted a few empty bottles to create some Pumpkin Bowling games for an upcoming fall festival.
bottles - faces
I followed this tutorial from Meet The Dubiens blog.  but I found it necessary to use a hair dryer to dry the paint so it wouldn’t sink to the bottom of the bottles. (Even applying heat to the outside of the bottle will help dry the paint inside.)

Hope the kids will enjoy this!
Thanks for visiting!

  7. Those are awesome- my kids would love this! Thank you for linking up to the The Sunday Showcase

  8. So, so cute! How did you make the faces? I plan on creating these pins and using small pumpkins for my bowling ball, but I think it is so cute with the faces.

    1. I realize that you asked this questions 4 years ago, but I just found this post and started searching for those faces for my project and found them! If you go to and search pumpkin carving, it will come up. Hope that it's still relevant!

  9. The faces on each bottle are so so cute!!! How did you make them?
