Pumpkin Chic mainWho says pumpkins can’t be chic, elegant, glamourous – even swoon-worthy? This past weekend I immersed myself in a Halloween DIY with my little guy. After visiting the farmer’s market for a variety of pumpkins we dug about in the utility room to find spray paint, chalkboard paint, and some thumb tacks – suddenly a plethora of  ideas began brewing.  I must admit, wasn’t quite sure how this would all go – I didn’t really have a plan and was certainly entering uncharted drippy pricky tricky territory, but that’s exactly what made this crafty endeavor all the more exciting!

We taped, sprayed, dripped, pricked, styled & photographed for most of the day Saturday and if I do dare to say so….I think our pumpkins came out pretty damn SPECTACULAR!!! A little paint, a smidge of creativity and a bit of the unknown = A whole lotta glam & giggles!

Favorite moment of the day? Jivan’s melt-my-heart statement with a I-can-hardly-contain-my-excitement tone “Mom, what’s awesome is that this looks great but kids can do it too!”
