Painted Patterned Pumpkins

We’ve spent lots of time and energy updating the interior of our home.  This weekend it was fun to spend some time creating some Painted Pretty Pumpkins to fancy up the exterior for Fall!

My little guy helped me load my basket with five pumpkins, one for each of us!  The more warts and bumps — the better the pumpkin.

Outside, I brushed on some primer, followed by a quick coat of white spray paint.  Then I brought the pumpkins into the house and threw our craft table cloth down so we could paint our pumpkins.

Our gray and white painted pumpkins are all set up on our side door — the door most commonly used by our friends and family!

The sweet little polka-dots were very easy, thanks to a Martha Stewart Foam Pouncer.  And Little B found just the right thickness for the chevron pumpkin.

I keep thinking one of these years I’m going to be able to go crazy with orange when Autumn rolls around, but again this year, it’s just not my thing.  Little touches here and there mix perfectly with my favorite color combinations, gray and white.  And now that the weather is beginning to cool off, they should make it all the way until Thanksgiving!!!
