Painted Pumpkins

  Definitely not your
Grandmother's pumpkins!
Decorating pumpkins is a beloved tradition in our home.
The typical jack-o-lantern is our usual style.

But this year,
my daughter thought it would be fun to
do something a bit different.

How about
painting our pumpkins?
After some research on Pinterest,
and a bit of inspiration from blogs
(check them out here, here and here),
we were ready get creative.

 Using painters tape as a guide,
we traced our lines in pencil.
Next, spray and acrylic paint
created the designs.
We then sealed the acrylic paint
before adding
puff paint accents.




 Painted pumpkins.
A whimsical take on an
old tradition.
