I know orange pumpkins totally work as Thanksgiving decorations, but I was starting to get a little tired of our Halloween pumpkin that has been on our porch since mid-October. So I pulled out my craft box and gave it a little update.
OK, Here’s the deal.
I gathered up all of my white shades of craft paint. Most bottles were dried up (they are old), but I managed to mix a great creamy color.
Gave the pumpkin two coats and let it dry for a few hours.
I picked up this pretty striped ribbon and gold patio paint from Michaels. (If you order online, use Ebates to get 3% cash back at Michaels and tons of other stores (cash back % varies).)
…and I painted “Give Thanks” on the pumpkin. I’m sure most of you have better handwriting than I do.
…and I tied a bow with the pretty ribbon on the rotting stem (guess pumpkins don’t last forever, after all).
Pretty darn simple. Ready to welcome family to our home for Thanksgiving!
