The Painted Pumpkin

Did you know that pumpkin carving is out
and pumpkin painting is IN!
These are some fabulous examples of what you
 can do with an ordinary orange pumpkin...
dress it up a little!

Check out these beautifully painted pumpkins from American Greetings 

A Story Book Life made these diamond pumpkins. I love 'em!

An Enchanted Cottage was in the process of making something else out of these pumpkins, but I decided that I love the look of step #4, just black!


High Style on a Small Budget created this beauty! I never knew a pumpkin could look so elegant!

Glue Gun Crafts featured this pumpkin over at Parent's.com I love the square cut outs against the white!

All You did black and white stripes on her pumpkins. Can't ever go wrong with the stripes!

Good Housekeeping shared this pumpkin with us. With the leaves sticking out the top, it reminds me of a project I've been working on! (... you'll have to wait and see!)

Good Housekeeping also posted these. Okay, I may have cheated on this one, because there is no paint involved, but I couldn't pass these up! Such a simple way to dress up a plain 'ol pumpkin... just using ribbon.

Eddie Ross just added ric rac and some white paint to make these pumpkins adorable!

Home Made Simple painted these.  Who loves damask? ...ME! :)

Happy Punkin' Pickin' & Paintin'

What a wonderful idea. Looks so nice and no pumpkin mess from carving! Might have to give this a try in October.
