This year I’ve seen a whole lotta pumpkin decorating that goes beyond your usual template or freehand carving. I decided I needed a piece of the action. I usually have to have a real pumpkin, but I figured if I was going to make a masterpiece- that I would want it to last instead going through a slow death on the stage that is our front porch.
I went over to Michael’s and got a few plastic pumpkins and these wood paint pens. They had lots of fluid paint that made them easy to work with.
This took maybe a half hour. I went a little crazy on the “Lear” pumpkin, but I guess I can always try again on the back.
Have you been getting crafty lately- any ideas to share?
