This past week my kids and I took the entire Monday to do nothing but art projects. I love Fall and I needed some new decorations to spice up my mantle and other areas of my home. I love to decorate with art made by my kids like here and here. One of my favorite art projects as a kid was painting pumpkins. I picked up a couple of fake pumpkins, glitter, stencils and paint for under $20. Yes I know “glitter is the herpes of the craft world” according to one of my Facebook fans, but sometimes you have to live on the dangerous side and play a little.
A Fun Personalized Project
It was neat to watch my children paint their pumpkins and see their creativity come alive. I let them put the colors on as they chose and helped with the glitter. To make the pumpkins even more special I personalized them with a stencil of the letter of their first name. I painted the T and then the K in black paint and then glittered it.
Personalized Pumpkin Art
- Fake or Real Pumpkin
- Paint any colors
- Stencil of your choosing
Our pumpkins turned out beautifully, and added the personalized touch created special and fun art for my children. My kids love their pumpkins and I am thankful they are fake because they have rolled down the stairs, slept with, and yes, they did manage to stay on my mantle for all of five seconds.
