Every year, my son’s class would take a field trip to the Pumpkin Farm and every year I would oogle and google over the charming and whimsical painted pumpkins faces that were on display. “Pumpkin Painting Faces”. How cool,” I thought.
Then I looked at the high price tags and decided that those charming and whimsical little guys could stay right were they were, at the pumpkin farm. I couldn’t believe that something that wouldn’t last through Christmas could cost so much.
I thought many times about attempting to paint them myself, but for some reason, those little orange squashes intimidated the heck out of me. Finally, I gave it a try. I began to experiment with different paints, different processes, different types of pumpkins, different designs.Different painting patterns and ideas.
Our pumpkin painting mini-masterpieces turned out so well, that now they are our family’s trademark for the Halloween season. Our house is the envy of the entire neighborhood. Families make special trips just to drive by to see our Painted Pumpkins Faces! And every year, neighbors comment on how beautiful our home looks during the season and are always wanting to know where we come up with all our painted pumpkin faces ideas. I tell them that I found a book about painting pumpkin faces that I go by and anyone can do it.
