A Crafty Halloween
We went a bought our pumpkins a week ago but they've been sitting out in the garage waiting to be cleaned up and decorated. So the day before yesterday I finally felt well enough to tackle the job. Cleaning them up was no problem but decorating???? That was a whole other story. I'm really not a Halloween person and cutting up pumpkins is way to messy so I look for other ways to do the job. I bought 5 pumpkins (is that crazy or what) and now had to come up with a way to decorate them. So I grabbed my Sharpies and decided to doodle some faces. The odd shape of the larger pumpkin was easy so that was done first, then I took a close look at the small round one and all the lines went in first and then I doodled eyes and bats, kind of like looking through prison bars, right? So I had two done and had to come up with ideas for the other three. I turned to my card making supplies for ideas and came up with Memories Mists in Whipped Cream and Black. Perfect! I took all the pumpkins out front and started spraying them, I did one of the small ones in white and one in black and the large one in both. After I had them all done I coated them all with an acrylic spray.
We had a lot of Trick or Treaters last night (close to 300) and my pumpkins were a hit.
Hope you like them and thanks for stopping by.
