After a lot of brainstorming (the night before Halloween) I decided to skip out on all the messy carving and use acrylic paint on my pumpkins this year!! I'm keeping it clean and simple; only using black and white!!
The Ikat pumpkin....
The word collage pumpkin.....
These were super easy to make!! Each did not take more than 15 minutes paint!!
To make the Ikat pumpkin......
First, spray paint your pumpkin.....I added a little bit of glitter to mine before the paint dried!!
Next, get your paint and a brush! Use quick vertical strokes. Continue to layer until you get the look you want!
Here it is complete.....
I love how simple but trendy it is....
The word collage pumpkin was even easier to make!!
First I spray painted the pumpkin black, then I used a fabric paint pen and wrote Halloween inspired words all over it! It's as simple as that!!
The display at my front door! I love the look of pumpkins in an urn! The "C" I made last year. It is a cardboard letter covered in moss....as you can tell, the sun has done a great job fading it!!
I had to give my front porch some color!! Can you spot Julia's teeny tiny pumpkin??
Here is is!!....it's just screaming for some FINGERPAINTS!!
Oh yes......Julia painted one herself!!
An artist in the making!!!
I love how she carefully dips one finger at a time in the paints!!
True art is made with a beautiful mess surrounding it!!
Happy Halloween Everyone!!
