DIY Painted Pumpkins and other Halloween spookiness

October 26, 2015

I’m painting instead of carving this Halloween. Pearlized paint from my local craft supplies shop, transformed these grocery store pumpkins into magical fairy tale creations. It was an easy job which I did over the course of an evening to allow for drying time between the two coats needed for coverage.

Bandage-style ribbon and stick-on wiggle eyes turned the biggest gourd into a mummy.

The painted pumpkins plus a pair of black tinsel wreaths were fun upgrades to my small collection of Halloween decorations.

I am a bit worried about the toy rat on my front step. Between my dog Blu trying to carry it off in it’s mouth and the exterminator, who is calling by today, he could be in trouble!
