Halloween is always a fun time of year, and it wouldn't be Halloween without carving a pumpkin This year I let my youngest daughter carve most of the pumpkin by herself with some close supervision of course.
First she drew on the face.
Then I cut the opening on top for her
Then she scooped out the inside.
Here is the final result, Cassidy called him Bob!!!
and from my other paints I chose a fall color palette to use.
I then painted on some hearts with black paint, and added decoration to them with gold paint. For added color I found some old puffy paint and put some green and purple dots on top.
The second pumpkin I then spray painted with gold paint.
I doodled a flourish design that I was really happy with and decided to follow for this pumpkin.
I then used the same color palette and painted the colors in a random pattern. While the paint was still wet I laid paper towels on the surface to remove some of the paint and to give it the look of texture by letting the gold spray paint show through.
I then used black paint to draw on my pattern.
I think these both came out so cute!
Trick or Treat
Lastly what is Halloween with out kids in costumes. This year only our youngest Cassidy wanted to go make the candy walk, so of course we had to take pictures before she went out.
