I got the salad spinner idea from my friend Jenn who got it from the Crafty Crow. Cut paper to fit in your spinner. Squirt in the paint (red, yellow, & orange for pumpkins). Close and spin. Use washable paint (thanks, Jenn).
Color the backs if you want to tape to a window. Cut out stems and tape on.
Fun and so nice to have pumpkins to hang around the house.
