If You're Not Throwing a Pumpkin-Painting D.I.Wine Night, You're Missing Out

Painting pumpkins + Drinking cider = a very good time.

For the record: Painting pumpkins is not as easy as it looks on Pinterest. Type in "street address pumpkin," and you'll be greeted with adorable imagery of perfectly painted gourds. Try it in real life and you might end up with sad, slanted numbers and a ruined pumpkin. At least, that's how it went down on the latest episode of D.I.Wine. We felt super confident going into the craft—how hard could painting pumpkins with stencils be?! It turns out a lot could go wrong.

While this was WEIRDLY SO MUCH HARDER THAN WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE, it was still a great time. The best time, even! We paired the craft with Angry Orchard because, well, it's fall, and wore our comfiest sweaters. Oh, and, Alyssa got paint on her nose and I attempted to open a bottle of cider with a hammer. So that happened.

Painting the pumpkin (we used fake ones, because my front stoop does not need pumpkin guts all over the place after a squirrel attack) was the best and easiest step. Things got tricky when we got to stenciling, and I ended up free-handing my number, though it was ruined either way. In theory, the craft requires painting a pumpkin, then stenciling numbers to it to show your address. Try it for yourself—definitely with cider for all of the fall feels—and watch the full episode of D.I.Wine in the video above.

Address Pumpkin Drinking Rules

  1. Drink if you can't paint on yourself.
  2. Drink if you say pumpkin.
  3. Drink if you smudge the paint.


  1. Paint the pumpkin, and let it dry thoroughly.
  2. Trace the stencil on.
  3. Spray the stencil with adhesive spray and cover with glitter.
  4. Remove the stencil.
Pro tip: Blow dry the pumpkin on cool to make it dry faster.
