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.
