Carving and Painting Pumpkins

Halloween is just around the corner! My little guys sure are getting excited.
Last weekend we carved and painted our pumpkins that we picked out at the Pumpkin Patch.
(You can read that post HERE).

 So I decided to paint orange circles onto my beautiful white pumpkin. I love the way it turned out and so I am going to show you how I did it.
First I started off with one beautiful white pumpkin, an empty paper towel roll (you could use a toilet paper roll as well) and some orange craft paint.

 Next, I squeezed a fair amount of the orange paint onto a plate. Then I dipped the paper towel roll into the paint making sure it was covered well. And then carefully I stamped the paper towel roll onto the pumpkin.

 I did try to go in a pattern, starting with the top.

 While I was painting my pumpkin, Jax was busy painting his.  And Yes that is the "pumpkin" he picked out.

He gave it a cute little smiley face.  One eye is blue, the other is yellow.  Half the smile is green and the other half red.  
I love it,  it makes me smile.

 I placed my pumpkin on the shelves in my kitchen.


Liam drew this fun face on his Big pumpkin.  Then with the help of his dad, they carved it out.

Isn't that such a great face?

 I love it all lit up at night.

  4. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. I’ll give you a link on your web blog. I recently came to know about, their Man and Van Croydon are very effective.
