Decorating Pumpkins

October 12, 2011 by 28 Comments

I found lots of Fancy Pumpkin Crafts, but nothing beats painting at our house.  I guess they’ve seen mommy and daddy do so much of it, they think it’s a part of daily life!  We love chalkboard paint on pumpkins!  The fun can last all month long…a simple wipe with a damp paper towel and your kids can create over and over again!!!
Chalkboard Paint can be used on ANYTHING
Paint Two Coats or Until Completely Covered
 Regular Chalk Just Isn’t the Same
Chalk Ink is a Little Pricey so Bring a Coupon
So Worth It
 Current Creations: Black Cat, Witch and Skullhead
They’ve Wiped and Redrawn Several Times Already
Pumpkin Heads
Pumpkins on the Piano

 

We also put a chalkboard pumpkin on the mantle as we countdown for Halloween.  Have you seen my mantle post!?!  Here are a few other ideas…all pretty simple and would look great on a mantle, front porch or bedroom dresser!!!  Be sure to let the kids help ~ they’ll love their home even more!
