Painting Pumpkins

Easiest project ever!!  All that is needed is:
  • Pumpkins (fake or real--I used fake because I wanted the white background and wanted to keep them for next year)
  • Paint (I used Martha Stewart glitter paint because who doesn't love some sparkle?)
  • Paint Brushes



At first I was going to tape the chevron pattern on, hence the tape in the picture, but I got lazy and decided to free hand it.  I also decided a cute polka dot pattern would be cute too!


I think I am going to paint a few more to make a cluster for my front porch and they will stay there all fall!

  3. Painted pumpkins look like they'd be SO much easier than carved (and far less messy!). These are nice!
