Supplies Used

The best part of doing any sort of tangling or doodling is the simplicity of what you need to get started. For this project you only need some white watercolor paper, white print paper to print the free printable on, watercolor paint and brush, transfer paper, fine point black ink pen and pencil. Here we are using the same markers we used on the coloring stickers made with the Cricut Maker. So many great colors and options if you want to change up your version of this Zentangle Jack-o-lantern.

This is the watercolor paper we are using as well. I have used many types of watercolor paper but I love this brand and find myself using it for art projects all the time.

How to Make a Watercolor Zentangle Jack-o-lantern

  1. Print out the printable, place it over the transfer paper (with the dark side facing down) on your watercolor paper.
  2. Take a pencil and trace over the lines of the printable. This will transfer the design onto your watercolor paper. Make sure not to shift your paper when doing this step to avoid your design getting shifted.
  3. Take your printable and transfer paper off your watercolor paper and you will have a happy jack-o-lantern smiling back at you!
  4. Watercolor your pumpkin to your liking and allow it to dry. This should only need 5-10 minutes once you are done.
  5. Once dry start adding zentangle designs to your pumpkin as you wish using your black fine point pen
