My aunt has the most amazing farm in Cowichan Bay and grows lots of beautiful produce, the best garlic you've ever tasted (don't tell my dad) and these miniature gourds. Who doesn't love a mini pumpkin, especially in white? I decided since life has slowed down quite a bit I should get back to my crafting ways and what better way then to decorate the house with some seasonal decoration. Especially before the craziness of Christmas begins! I used to craft a lot when I was younger, but as I got older I found myself putting down those projects and just chalking up to being busy. It's nice to get back to it and turn the TV off, put the phone away and actually relax while making something. It was super easy and they turned out really cute.
I chose to work with all white pumpkins but you could go for the little orange ones as well. I also decided gold and grey paint would be simple and chic and less chance of making them look tacky. All you need is a small paint brush, some cheap paint and you can do whatever you want! My favourite pumpkin I did was the polka dot one. Dave worked on a really cool striped one in grey and gold. Then I did a half golf, half white pumpkin, a paint drip style one and then a sort of paint brush/splatter style. I placed them around the living room and on the kitchen table for a sort of centre piece for when people come to visit. An easy way to get in the Fall and Halloween spirit!
