How to Hand Letter Mini Pumpkins with Foil

I found these cute mini white pumpkins and this foil from Heidi Swapp was just sitting in a craft box for a year. So let’s learn how to hand letter mini pumpkins with foil!

For this project, I knew I wanted to hand letter on some mini pumpkins but I wasn’t sure what medium I wanted to use. I had this Minc foil from Heidi Swapp that I purchased on clearance for over a year. And, what gave me the idea to try it was when I found the Minc Toner pen.

I know that you’re supposed to use this system with a laminating machine. It helps the foil adhere to the toner (can’t do it with ink).

But, if I could write directly on the pumpkins with the Toner pen, why not try applying the foil and using a heat tool?

This project didn’t go exactly as I had planned, but still came out sort of cute.

Products to Hand Letter Mini Pumpkins with Foil

For this I used:

Heidi Swapp Hot Pink Reactive Foil*

Heidi Swapp Minc Toner Pen*

Mini pumpkins were purchased at Target produce for $.99 each

This project isn’t perfect. Why? The waxy texture of the pumpkins makes it hard for the Toner Pen to adhere without being streaky. So you’re going to get a streaky look when you apply the foil.

I also ended up simply rubbing the foil on with my fingers rather than using a heat tool. It worked much better. You can see some of the black behind the foil, but it gives it character.

Next time? I’d probably just do embossing.
