Although I haven't dragged out the Halloween box yet, I've been gathering some great "non-traditional" ideas for pumpkins this year. (Thank you, Pinterest!) I love carving pumpkins. Definitely one of my favorite Halloween activities. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but don't they seem to shrivel up and die in like 4 days? You almost have to carve them 2 or 3 times throughout the month of October to have one flickering on your porch for the big Trick-Or Treat!
Here's a round-up of some great ideas for our favorite little orange friend, Mr. Pumpkin.
Lace stockings. Genius.
Mummified! Get the kids to help with this one.
Chalkboard Paint. Not the most original idea, but I like how they used the chalk pen for a cleaner look. My sister will never go back to regular 'ol chalk. :)
Cute newspaper decoupage.
Brilliant! Martha's done it again.
Could work for Thanksgiving!
Darling little placecards.
Black and white silhouette.
Quick and easy. I'm all for that.
Last but not least...I know this would require some carving. But it's SO cute!
(Is my baby to big to do it? Hmmm...)
Have a wonderful weekend!
