MAKE / Painted Pumpkins
When it comes to taking super sharp pointy objects and applying them to a pumpkin...nope. I'm just no good! The best you might get from me is some seriously basic triangle eyes and a slightly crooked toothless jack-o-latern grin. If I even make it that far. I usually throw in the towel sometime after I gut the sucker and make for the kitchen to roast some seeds. Now seed roasting, that is an area where I excel. Invite me to your pumpkin carving party and I'll definitely lose the contest, but I'll roast the best pumpkin seeds you've ever had! But I digress.
I'm pretty in to the fact that painted pumpkins seem to be all the rage this Halloween season! Not only is that totally my speed, but the end result is just so lovely to look at! I got my gourds all gussied up by getting creative with spray paint, painters tape, spray adhesive, and glitter.
So maybe I won't be winning any pumpkin painting contests any time soon either, but I sure had fun! Get inspired by these no carve pumpkins projects and happy decorating!
