. Pumpkins .
Pumpkins! They're about as Fall/Autumn as you can get, am I right, or am I right? :mrgreen:

I've always loved carving pumpkins, and as the years came and went I strayed away from the pumpkin-book design kits and onto Google (or in this years case, Pinterest). Pumpkins, while always amazing and fun, just became a month long activity for me (yeah, I only just figured out you can paint them xD).

Meet my first painted pumpkin:

*sigh* Prettiful.

Anywhos, I want more. MORE I TELL YOU! So yeah, you know, post your creations and ideas. Let us start a pumpkin movement, together. :lol:

I will be posting more pics as the weeks go on. Ain't no ways I'm stopping at just one gorgeous squash.

Oh pretty. I love the little kitties! ^^

Well I might have to get into this.

Oooo yay, someone to pumpkin with!

Okay, I went though my FB pictures on a scavenger hunt for my 1st non-kit pumpkin. I give you, dun da dun dunnnn:


Hubs and I had a garden wedding in 2006, so this pumpkin would be from 2007. The trees leaves? Drilled. Ya heard me, we cheated. Big time. xD

Oh that is so pretty.

I'll definately make a pumkin, but it will probably be one of th fake ones so I can display it at work.

LancasterPrincess 10-07-2012 12:43 PM one feeling the creative inspiration of fall yet?

Aw well, another week, another pumpkin project!

We can't afford a pumpkin this year :( We can't even afford to hand out candy on Halloween.

I'm loving your pumpkin painting skills, though I would love an explanation about what the letters and symbols mean :)

LancasterPrincess 10-07-2012 01:54 PM

It spells out BOO! The two black ones are just scary/pretty font, but the O in the middle is also a biohazard symbol.

That stinks. I don't get to hand out candy, our house doesn't get trick or treaters its too busy of a road. But I still get to decorate. Actually this is my bargin decorating. Those 3 pumpkins cost only $2.25 at .75$ a piece. Much cheaper than $4-5 per pumpkin for plastic ones I'd have gotten to keep.

We only just started buying holiday decor this year. My deal is I won't whine as long as Aaron buys me 2 pieces every holiday, but only after the holiday passes and things go on sale. Works for me!

Oh, of course! Lol how did I not see that?

Well to compensate...VIRTUAL PUMPKINS!

Except none of them are turning out cool enough to share xD

I'm excited to see your virtual pumpkins Bridie!

Okay, who wants to see Gracie in a pumpkin? I DO, I DO!

Saw this on Pinterest and just HAD to recreate it with our pumpkin pie. This week's pumpkin project is on hold (gasp, we're broke!) but I plan on doing 2 pumpkins when we get paid on Friday, to catch up. :mrgreen:

Your pumpkins look reallly good, I'd love to try that, but mine probably wouldnt turn out so good. And Gracie is so cute :D
