Carveless Pumpkins

pumpkins

Yesterday’s post got me hooked on carveless pumpkins so I did some searching and found some more amazing examples. The sky really is the limit for what you can do! I also like the idea of decorating with plain pumpkins, they just so perfectly evoke the spirit of the season. I’m definitlly going to have to make some time next week to do some pumpkin inspired projects of my own!

    Oh my, GREAT research on this. I really want to do the zebra pumpkin, and the trio of three stenciled pumpkins would be so perfect for Thanksgiving. thanks for the inspiration.

    Wow. The one looks like a little mini wedding cake it’s so darn cute! I used to paint on pumpkins when I was younger… perhaps we’ll bring it back this year…
