Hey Ya’ll! I’m Jenilyn, the author of the Mommy and Crafty Blog, Grits and Giggles. I am a Medical Laboratory Scientist by day, but my real job is being a wife and mommy to a beautiful 1 year old little girl! I love to cook, sew and craft for my home and family. I am a southern girl through and through, which usually comes out in everything that I do!
I’m so excited to be here at The Crafty Nest today to share with you my “Pumpkin Trio”. You just can’t have too many pumpkins around Halloween, and at the first signs of October, mine are out on the porch, welcoming in the fall. Halloween pumpkins don’t always have to be scary, or carved! I’m going to show you how to make three wonderfully decorated pumpkins using paint and three classic designs: Polka Dots, Argyle, and a Monogram. Let’s get started!
Acrylic paints, any colors
Diamond pattern or stencil
Step 1: I could not find white pumpkins, but I wanted them white, so I grabbed some paint I had at home and painted them. You could make your pumpkins any color you would like, just make sure your accent colors will show up! TaaDaa! Three lovely white pumpkins.
Step 2: Using a pencil or marker, trace a quarter onto your pumpkin to make polka dots. Try to stagger them a little bit so they’re not in straight lines. You could trace dimes too if you wanted tinier dots, or mix it up a little and do both!
Step 11: Group them together to adorn your front porch, or as a beautiful fall centerpiece. Sit back, admire your craftiness, and enjoy the blessings of fall! Thanks again to The Crafty Nest for having me over today.
