a few years ago i realized that carving pumpkins wasn't as fun as i pretended it was. after all that work you end up throwing them out after a few weeks because they get that wrinkly-old-man-pumpkin-face. you know what i mean?
this year i decided to have fun decorating my pumpkins with:
after halloween i'll just wipe that jack-o-lantern face right off of that chalkboard pumpkin and draw something more november appropriate.
they were all very easy, a bit of glue, glitter, and leftover paint is all it took to jazz up my ordinary pumpkins.
the chevron pumpkin took the most work, but with a little masking tape, my trusty scissors, and some white spray paint i had on-hand, it was actually quite fun. and the color possibilities are endless: eggplant, navy blue, and yellow would all be fun with the orange. and if you feel you can't commit to painting, you could even get the look by just leaving tape on the pumpkin. green frog tape would look fantastic. wouldn't washi tape add another element of fun to pumpkins? i'm thinking washi-plaid...
are you doing anything fun with your pumpkins this year?
