DIY: Painted Pumpkins

September 13, 2016


Hey guys! Our family was on vacation for the past few days in sunny Florida with some of our closest friends. It’s our yearly tradition to go right after Labor Day weekend and it was just what our family needed. We enjoyed the beautiful white beach, swam in the clear ocean, kayaked, celebrated my middle son’s birthday, caught a bunch of blue crabs and just enjoyed being in each other’s presence. The kids even found 3 hermit crabs and brought them home to keep as pets. We shall see how long they survive!

Georgia has been pretty hot and humid but I couldn’t help but to get an early start on all things pumpkin related. I was telling my girlfriend last night that bloggers typically share at least a month ahead of the holiday or season to share inspiration with their readers. 


I found some craft pumpkins in the aisle at Michaels and they were discounted at 50% off so I snagged two bags. I decided to paint them because I had a certain vision in mind when creating my color palette for the Fall. 


I went with muted tones of blues, greens and whites. I used whatever paint I had because I always have a good amount on hand.

I painted some with two tones to give them more dimension and add character. 


I added them in a basket and they help to welcome in Autumn with my dried limelight hydrangeas from the garden. It’s truly my favorite season of all.

Now, if only the weather would cooperate and get cooler! I’m still waiting for the delicious pumpkin bread mix to show up at Trader Joe’s. Why is that mix so good? 

Have a wonderful week, friends!
