I’ve never been big on carving pumpkins. I’ve done it a few times but it’s messy and a squirrel usually ends up eating it. I’d rather take out some acrylic paints and paint mine. I had bought two pumpkins but someone unfortunately stole one of them off our steps so I only had one large and three minis to decorate. One of my best friends came over on Saturday and we decorated as we made fun of horror movies. It made for a fun afternoon.
I hopped on Pinterest for some inspiration. I saw this tutorial and decided to make a galaxy pumpkin. I painted the whole pumpkin black and the stem gold. I then sponged on pink, purple, blue and gold paint. Lastly, I painted on some stars.
For the party pumpkins, I saw this tutorial and needed to make them! How cute are they? I painted each mini pumpkin a sold color, drew on a face and made a little party hat from construction paper. I added some gold washi tape to them as well. How did you decorate your pumpkins this year?
