Painted pumpkins

After moving to the States I was looking forward to carving pumpkins for Halloween and when I finally did it I loved how they looked lit up at night but didn’t expect them to collapse so quickly. This is something that will never happen when you paint them.

I started painting pumpkins 3 years ago and my only regret is having to wait a whole other year to do it again.

It isn't as difficult as it may seem. Start with a printed image of what you want to paint.

Such awesome ideas! This is so much safer (and less messier) than carving! Thanks for linking up to #babybrainmonday x
