Non-Traditional Pumpkins


Want to do something fun and different with your pumpkin decorating this year? How about painting them up in a very non-traditional way! I no longer have little ones at home so I wanted my pumpkin decor to be fun this year and to last longer than just to Halloween. Here's what I came up with.
Bought a variety of sizes...ready to paint

If you want some guidance as you paint, you can use painter's tape and tape off sections or even use stencils to paint on your designs. I like to go free-hand as much as I can because I like the "homemade look" that gives the finished pumpkin!

Use your imagination and any color palette you like! Get creative...I stayed somewhat fall-like with some of my color choices.

I put a bow for a finishing touch on this one!

Maybe you even want to leave one plain and just add a beautiful bow. Want to add a little "Halloween feel" to some of them? Add on some cute little rubber bats or spiders that you can easily remove after Halloween.
