Painting pumpkins is by no means a brand new idea...but learning how to make painted pumpkins your own can be so much fun. I love love love floral print right? I mean love it. I also love a splash of something graphic thrown right up next to floral print. I especially love wear things like this. Like a pretty striped cardigan with a full blown wild floral print dress. My fav. So I decided to incorporate some patterns and details that I love into a pretty painted pumpkin display for our front porch. I'm actually a bit of a 'loose painter' and so I just went wild with some space-y and messy brush strokes and painted a pretty teal and purple flowers all a big pumpkin. Then threw in a pretty chevron painted pumpkin and a half white scalloped pumpkin along with some pretty pretty natural ones. This project was so much fun...and it would be a great thing to do with kids and families as well. Take things that you already love and paint them right on some pumpkins... birds, hearts, polka dots. Just have fun!
