best pumpkins ever | Halloween 2013
these are by far the best, most fun, most creative pumpkins this family has collectively created.
and it didn't even involve scooping out pumpkin guts!
*pumpkins of choice
*paint: in this case...yellow, blue, and purple
*canning jar lid rings
*poster paper for eyes
*hot glue gun
*black chenille stems for hair or wig pieces/feathers for evil purple minions
*newspaper and masking tape for painting and keeping surfaces protected
I can tell you it is a paint and wait, then paint and wait some more process.
The shortest time I've found is 2 days just to allow for things to set.
If you are like my youngest daughter, it will take you well over a week ;)
In the end, each one somehow reflected our personalities a bit. I smiled or chuckled every time I looked at them.
They are still on our porch because I can't take the thought of throwing them away right now!
our 2013 pumpkins will definitely go down in the scrapbooks!
