The holidays are a perfect time to spend with family as well as an opportunity to show true festive spirit, even when pregnant.
That’s why you should start off the holiday season right with Halloween! Not into costumes? No worries. We have some fun pregnant belly painting ideas for you this Halloween!
Use your belly instead of canvas to show off some pregnant belly art!
The trend of painting the pregnant belly has become increasingly popular with social media. You get to brag about your pregnancy along with creatively painted belly pictures that will grab a lot of attention.
As pregnancy progresses, your belly will become more and more prominent. This might make finding Halloween costumes for your pregnant belly a bit of a challenge. Instead of looking for a costume, check out some of the photos below to find inspiration for your own pregnant belly art.
If you’re wondering how to paint your pregnant belly for Halloween, the first thing you’re going to need is body paint. This is a temporary color that will allow you to paint on your belly using the color combinations of your choice.
Make sure the paint is non-toxic and chemical-free so your body doesn’t absorb any unwanted chemicals.
You’ll also need a large mirror if you’re painting yourself, or someone who’s going to do the painting for you. The second is a much more convenient option. You can just lie down and watch as your belly become a lovely work of art.
